°°° Ran across this advice°°°
If you really want to squeeze the sound, split the signal into two channels and squeeze only one of them. It gives a nice solid ground, which you can open under the original, uncompressed material.

I sort of experimented with something like this on the last track I posted.AZOTH. Using the new PCM's increased levels per sample, I had two similar sounding loops pannned . On one beat loop i turned the level up to like 189 and left the other normal. with the compressor set fairly aggressive it did exactly this, the squashed sound with some punch from the normal loop. It might have worked better with the same loop as is suggested here in the quote. Give it a try, this way it works with one pattern in one machine.
To split the signal can be a good thing to do with other effects as well. As it can clarify a mix but still have the reverb etc coming through fine.
This is the time the night and the year
