In a thread of tweets regarding the choice to track vocals that have already been run through a compressor, Tumay states that he prefers to "use a Neve/CL-1b and compress until it sounds right with nothing on Pro Tools" before making in-the-box adjustments. Tumay's reasoning for this is that "no software compressor can touch any hardware compressor in [his] experience" (source)
Edit: Alex also recently bought his own CL-1B as of the 28th of December, 2018 to use going into 2019!
