Fair call. I know the mix into a Compressor/Limiter issue is a fighting point.

I do do it. I have my "Finalizing" ("Mastering" is the wrong word) Combi in there from the start but I write simplish mixes with 100% synthy sounds whereas you mixing real world stuff much of the time.

I did not use a compressor till a few years ago which amazed a few others but now I do a bit. Largely it was because I just didn't have one I could get. Reason makes it a lot easier. That and I wanted a really natural mix for my unnatural music.

Either way, best to learn to balance a mix without a compressor fighting you.
