the other 2 post following. Most of my post guys is not a "REAL" question most post is me just bouncing idea's off you guys to expand my knowledge. (Your my #1 source of new info believe it or not lol dont really go on gearslutz that much any more to saturated.) Im not the only engineer that has knowledge and experience but when you do what else is there? Dose it just stop as, you know all? No! So whats next step? The knowledge and experience of other people so that you can use/adapt/change/moderate your own skills. I mean there is always people with more knowledge and experience than you. Me, I like to learn and bouncing ideas off of you guys I have been able to gain quite a bit of knowledge. Even tho I know what Im doing at some point I would like to know how to do it different or sometimes you guys here do it better which in-turn makes me better thas all.

Greg I was check in out ur music the Wal-Mart At Midnight song is amazing lol, Im from a boring old country town and when we got bored guest were we went at night lol. Yep!
Mainly bass and vocals for me. I try not to use it too much as I'm only beginning to understand it. When I first started recording, like most people, I lathered my recordings with compression and reverb and made them sound like turd! Now I work on the idea that "a little dab'll do ya" as and when required.
Yeah....most times when I get to my mix stage, the majority of my compressors (rack gear) end up not even powered up these days.
Sometimes I'll use some light stereo bus compression, and occasionally something on bass guitar or lead guitar....and I've used a comp on drums (or some of the drums)....but it's all really light stuff.
I've just never been a "nuke it and crank the volume" kind of guy.
Last night I tracked some bass guitar, and ended up using a limiter on it just reel in the peaks, 'cuz when I went down the neck and hit some of the higher bass notes, the meters on my tape deck were getting pinned, so I wanted to knock them down but still keep the lower notes where they were.
So...looking at how lately DAW track/bus compression has become somewhat of a free for all ....I guess I don't really use it all that much or in any drastic way.
