    I have a subgroup setup for drums, bass, guitars, backing vocals and lead vocals and I was wondering which compressor everyone suggests for each subgroup. I have all of the compressors available, so suggest any one please.

    As a starting point, try 76 on the drums and guitars, Opto on backing and lead vocals, 16VU or the Mighty on bass. These are known for giving good results on those instruments.
    For drums I typically hit the 76 compressor fairly hard with very short release time, but then set the wet/dry mix to 60-70%.
    Everything else is very material dependent.
