Distressors as MIX Compressors????

Hello Dave and welcome to Gearslutz!

My qestion surrounds a common myth that the EL8s absolutly suck as mixing Comps!

I do not share this view, as I have had great luck combineing my two EL8s with the Manley MU (gasps from concerned crowd!)

Why are they not considered apropiate for this aplication?

Also, many people seem to not favour them on vocals and I was wondering if you might explain why that is.

Peace & Dreams,
