    Can someone tell me more about Compression?
    I want to know what it does and why I might need it.

    Also decent coverage in many, many threads on this forum. Check the sticky at the top of the fx page!

    Also, there's not really a case where you _need_ compression. It can be handy, and it can be a good idea sometimes, but like any other effect, it's not mandatory for anything.

    Don't feel blue, I love the compression-mega thread you started, but it didn't really cover the basics of "what" and "why" :)
