Hey Dennis,
I read in an earlier post that you feel that compression is not needed on every track. I also read that Marshal jefferson rarely uses compression. I wanted to ask in which situations do you feel compression and / or limiting is needed.

when amplitude peaks are disturbing ie:either the smoothness of a vocal (in which i prefer riding and automating a fader more so than comping) or as an effect ie: Your looking for a longer decay on a kick that has a short one...you can smash it..and it'll give you a tad more decay at the cost of other things of course.
