I did record some gamelan about 20 years ago, in analogue.

I think modern equipment has a much better dynamic range than what I was
using then.

Compression has side effects - that's why it is used in studios to make
percussion sound punchier. It can also be very useful for making speech
more intelligible.

I do not think it should be used when recording acoustic music.
