Well the thing was made for 2bus.
I use it a lot for that...I like it a lot... But hey, my taste may be completely different than yours?!
I always found that mixing into it gives better results than trying to run a printed mix through it...

I've had my '69 since the first year they were out. It's on just about every mix I do. I feel it adds a lot of tone and weight to my mixes. I did some mixes without it a few months ago. I though the mixes sounded good, but when compared to my other mixes they sounded thin and not finished. The '69 with the big switch has become a big part of my sound. It lives on my mix bus when I'm mixing.

Search for Drawmer 1968 too, it's the same comp w/o the preamp (cheaper too).

I got the 1968 and used it to mix through, following advice like has already been posted. It really works nice like this, I just leave it on from scratch.

With the Big switch I didn't need my multiband anymore.
