Priming an LA610 compressor

Singing through LA610 MKII and noticed that at the beginning of a track, the compressor didn't kick in right away. There was a very tiny amount at the beginning that was uncompressed. I wasn't recording so I don't have any samples. Is this normal and if so how can I "prime" the compressor to be "ready" for the first part of the vocals?

i some times do this trick when my la2 is popping at the start of a vocal.
Copy a piece of the vocal and paste it just before the start of the actual vocal track, then automate the return of the compressor to be muted for the copied audio and un mute it when the actual vocal starts. This way the compressor is already releasing/working when your vocal track hits it.

I'm super out of it so this post probably won't make much sense. let me know if you have any questions.
