Compression is a tricky effect to master when mixing and mastering. Sometimes compression is meant not to be heard; that is, to be transparent. Other times, it’s certainly meant to be heard as it’s used to push a signal into harmonic distortion.
Recording with compression is an even more delicate art: Where a heavy hand can ruin an amazing recording, a light touch can control and enhance very dynamic performances.
In this free video, Brian Lee White (author of Foundations of Audio: Compression and Dynamic Processing) explains the setup and signal routing for recording bass with hardware and software compressors, as well as the benefits and pitfalls of doing so.
