Always on? When do you not like to use them?
I got me a Wampler Mini Ego. Going into my MXR Modified OD into my recto, it sounds crushing during riffs and leads. I wonder- when and why would someone not use a compressor? I can only think of delicate nuanced stuff where you'd maybe turn it off (like the Diary of a Madman intro). Is that basically how people go about it?
