Compression mythology?


Hi guys,

I’m back again because I feel very disconcerted about what I red lastly.
I used to enjoy Gregory Scott podcasts (UBK funtime) and to use his plugins as well (Kush Audio and Sly-Fi).

This week I found this article, where he addressed most common misconceptions about compression.
And… It was like falling from the top of a building when I remember Danny’s explanation in the courses.
No offence Danny, because these myths are spreaded everywhere.

I’m just wondering now: Does those myths are taught to give easy understanding of a process (compression) with behaviors that finally don’t happen like that behind the scenes, or is it just the product of a common collective knowledge that is transmitted without scientific insights?

Any feedback welcome!
