Totally agree, but just wanted to point out that compression may get a little more complicated when it comes to monitoring. I’ve learned from some more or less unexperienced singers that they immediately reduce their volume when they start to hear themselves from the wedges. If the compressor tries to compensate too much for this and monitors are fed from post compressor (check global source for mix on the Qu) you may run into feedback problems when singers approach to the mics (from body reflections). Reducing vocals on monitors helps a lot to get more input from most singers..
…and if you’re asked: There are no compressors used at all, of course… 😉
