BSS DPR-402, make sense as a buss compressor?

Seems like a decent piece of gear, bought it 2nd hand. I like the de-essing modes. AFAIK it's used more for live than studio work(?), but would it make sense to use it as a buss compressor in this chain: Audient ASP008, Lynx Aurora 8, Cubase SX, UAD-1 (4), ME-G RL906 monitors (+ a sub later)? Or stick with the UAD ones? Anybody use the DPR-402 that way?

Stick it on your vocal bus...

I used it as a "program limiter" slightly touching the few peaks that would get me overs on the DAT...but that was before I used "real bus compression" à la MB.
IMHO you won't put it on your mixbuss for glue like an SSL or AlanSmart.
Might make a nice sub-comp though.
