Proof of bad compression.

I have a policy of not using compression, and it's very hard to create an artifact that shows the negative effects of compression on frequencies that lack being perceived by the Human Ear. I stumbled apon such an artifact and it should be noted that I madez the discovery
The artifact I have found, is on this extraordinary song. Pimps don't cry. I was studying it to learn something new.
At 2:50, is the attached sample.
At first I thought of it to be a buffer issue, but it's not.
There is nothing better than a Singer who has extra-ordinary volume control. But, as most singers aren't as talented as they hope to be. I have to constantly search for something to make them sound better. In Romania we say 'O palma peste ceafa si un sut in fund' - "A smack on de back-a da neck nd a boot in de ass'....But this comes from the communist days of our military rule, long story.
So, yep, compression is bad:P
This is how I work with my clients
