Why compression?

Hello everybody,


I've been learning a bit more about compression lately. I can definitely hear the difference when I use it and the results are great when used right. But it seems like all it's doing is bringing up the quiet stuff, and pushing down the loud stuff. Couldn't I just adjust the volume levels on the individual tracks? What's the point of compressing? 


 


Thanks!
