Default Re: Volume Automation prior to Compression

Send the vocal to an Aux with the compressor on it. Automate the original vocal track, which will let you ride the vocal levels into the compressor. Make sure to Solo Safe the Aux. I'd suggest using a mono Aux, putting any plugins that you want pre-compression on the vocal track, and any plugins you want post-compression, plus any effects sends, on the Aux.
