Carvin CG200 Opto Compressor?


While setting up the new sound system in my church tonight, someone pulled out a Carvin CG200 compressor to play around with. I hooked it up on the kick and snare and played with it for awhile, and it didn't sound too bad. We were in a full sized gym though, with no I couldn't really dig in and tell what it was doing to the sound too much. But it compressed pretty nice from what I could make out in an echo filled gym.

Has anyone tried this thing out in the studio? Primarily for mixing? What do you think? There isn't much out there on these things as far as feedback. I'm curious to know as it's pretty cheap. I plan to borrow it at some point and test it out, but I'd like to read some reviews from users as to how you like it as a mix compressor.
