How are you using your compressor ?

I have a doubt about the ways I use my compression.

Physically, I have understood the principle of this effect.

But today, I allways play with compression, because it boost my distortion (more gain). I like heavy distortion such as Metallica.

Are you playing also always with that ? or only during solo...

Is it possible that bad setup of the compression limit the artificial harmonics ?

Thanks for your advises.

Kinda depends on what else I'm using in the rig at the the moment I use the compressor only to fatten up clean single coil/split tones, but have used it with distortion occasionally as well.
