Side-chain using Hardware Comp (Stereo input okay?)

I have an SSL-clone hardware bus comp.

I've officially run out of mono outputs from my interface. However, I'd like to start using the sidechain feature of the bus comp. I have an Art Headamp6 that has extra stereo outputs not being used. (I'm using the mono passthrough outputs on the Headamp6 unfortunately).

Would it be okay to feed my Side-Chain input on the bus comp with a stereo signal? And at that... a stereo signal that's meant for headphones?

I've tried searching for this answer in manuals, google search, and this forum's search features but I'm coming up short at the moment. Please help :(

Anybody know?

The only examples I see come from a mono source. I'm worried a stereo signal may be too much. Don't want to overload anything unexpectedly
