rattling only with ac on

so i have narrowed down a rattle to only when the ac is on which leads me to believe it is the compressor that is rattling and not the a/c belt system because that is spinning even when the a/c is off. am I correct? or could it still be one of the pulleys in the a/c belt system?

If it is the compressor, is there any way around buying a new compressor? they're ridiculously expensive and ill just live with it if it comes down to that.

I live in arizona so the a/c had been perpetually on since i bought the car. Now that im experimenting what happenns when it off I have noticed that it shifts a lot rougher with the a/c off. Is this normal?
