Audient Bus Comp- Is it that bad?

Audient Bus Comp- Is it that bad? ( People like Alan Moulder use the desk!) why is it that people don't talk about the Audient Bus Comp- is it really that bad? (compared to the SSL ore Neve Bus Comps?)
Tryed to start a thread earlier, but it seamed the Audient owners didn't want to talk about it- is it really that bad??? HELLO!!!!!!

It just isn't that great. The desk is SO good for what it is. It really is a killer buy and I've made a lot of great recordings on those desks, but the bus compressor just stays off to be honest. There's a balanced insert point anyway.

In terms of what's wrong with it, it just isn't 'punchy'...it's sort of nothingy and changes the top end too much. Having said that, it's great on drums and it would be cool if you could switch it in to the groups...but you cant.

I can not reiterate enough that the useless bus compressor is no reason to not buy this desk. There is nothing that comes close to it sonically at that money. It's really a good bit of kit.

How hard could it be to modifies the desk, so one could patch the compressor into the groups?
