Lately I've had a lot of comp channels at my disposal with my own rig, so I run all individual vox with their own comp inserted. I find that to be more helpful compared to inserting on the vox group for bands where you have a backing vocal that's stronger than the lead, which can cause the comp to stomp on the lead vocal. With less channels of comp availible, I'll put the lead vox on their own comp channels, and insert a comp on a group for the backing vox. As far as settings, I try to use just enough to keep things under control, similar ratio & threshold settings to Dave's on the dbx comps. I don't like hearing compression. Right now on the leads, I'm liking the Aphex Compellor. It's pretty transparent. It doesn't have the usual controls, but it works pretty good. I'm using dbx 1046 for other vocal channels. I"m all about high passing the vocal channels too, and usually rolling of a good chunck of bottom with the low shelf of the channel strip. Mid and high EQ to bring them out in mix.
