That said, I have never used it on the 2bus, it lives on my substereo for drums and bass. But I'm sure it will work great on a full mix. Sure, VCA comps like SSL or API are a classic there for a reason, but with the Drawmer you have complete freedom with your ratios and timing. The character switches can be useful, the saturation, if not overused, is cool, the sidechain EQ very unique and powerful and you have a mixknob right on the unit for parallel compression. Given the quality and price, really what's not to like?
