Never heard of joint compound mixed with primer, but then, never heard of a lot of things.

I like to use PVA primer over raw rock and mud. It’s cheap and seals well.

If you do go with regular primer and are painting a wall or ceiling with color, think about having it tinted the color of your paint. If a yahoo from a big box said it can’t be done, as several have told me, go to a real paint store.

If you prime with a regular primer, such as one which blocks stains, there shouldn’t be any reason to prime with something else before painting. Stain blocker is a sealer (often, shellac).
