Hi Ket, I probably should have clarified - the use of compression in tracking is one of those debatable topics. Some people do it, while other people watch them and that's when the argument begins. I once followed a friend into the studio on a day off, just to provide an extra set of ears as he had a big session at one of the top studios here in Sydney with a (relatively) big name Australian producer. They actually got into a little debate about the issue, as the producer wanted to run the drums through compression (an original Urei 1176 and SPL transient designer), but my friend was adamant that he receive the tracks uncompressed and unprocessed. This producer however insisted that he always placed a compressor after the pres on drum tracks. The issue to me is this: the original 1176 is one of the most prized compressors in the world, and you'll probably get a better sound out of it when compared to the Logic compressor my friend would have slapped on it. As i mentioned before though, some people would say this is a bad idea as you're stuck with the sound. Personally i'd be happy to let a good producer do whatever he does to get a good sound so i can watch what he does and then copy him if i like the result! Not everyone is this open minded though. I'd be happy to give some constructive feedback, as i'm sure others would too.
