What causes the "pulsing" or "pumping" on a track? Compression?

I normally use EQ and compression on every vox track. A few months ago I started putting a Limiter at the end and liked the results. I recently upgraded my systems and my old plug-ins (and settings) did not carry over. Now I hear that "pulsing" or "pumping" on tracks where I am applying FX. Is it something on the compressor , i.e. Attack thats not set correctly that causes this to happen?
I am using Waves, T-Racks and/or Masterworks Plug-ins for the most part.
