So I have a Zoom-1266 Digital SIAB workstation. No programmed limiter or major soundwave compression device. I like the old school feel of my recordings, I don;t want to learn how to use pro tools.....anyways...If I bought an old school compression/limiter rack, set a cutoff regarding decibels and ran my drum mics through it would that actually work in keeping all of my snare tom hits at a certain level or under?

Just set the levels so that the highest peak doesn't get past -12 dbfs, play consistently, and you shouldn't need to record with a compressor.
