    Hi Jacob, I don't know the Warm TB12, but I usually have around 20-30 db of gain on my mic pre for a vocal with most condenser mics, then adjust from there. As far as an 1176 clone, such as the Warm, I personally always use the fastest release time and then adjust my attack time accordingly. A ratio of 3:1 is pretty normal for me if the 1176 is the only compressor in the chain. However if I'm using two compressors then I might use the 1176 second and use it just to catch excessive peaks with a ratio of 20:1 if the singer is a screamer! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing, many thanks Warren
