Actually the consensus is to modify the signal as least as possible before it 
hits the harddisk.

So instead of spending money on a cheap compressor-equalizer-limiter, you 
should spend it on a not-so-cheap pre-amp (maybe with in-built limiter and 
possibly adc). And learn about mic-placement, shock-absorbers, wind-screens 
and acoustical treatment of the recording-environment.

Have fun,
