stand up bass compression

Cool feedback on the stand up bass mic question.
OK, next step, what would you guys compress it with?
Levelling acoustic bass can be a friggin' nightmare.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.

I didn't get in on the bass answer so in short ...
I use a Royer 122 active ribbon mic compressed 6/1 with a Distressor with low end side chain engaged
I also have a Neumann M49 right next to it UNCOMPRESSED .... to be dealt with later. I also if possible record whatever Di the player has on his rig if he has one ...

The standard of success in life isn't the things. It isn't the money or the stuff. It is absolutely the amount of joy that you feel.
