OK, although if people just use default settings would it at least be
consistent. However possibly a limiter on each track instead of a
compressor might be a better choice? I use limiters and gates more on
individual tracks myself, but I wanted one plug that was more CPU

What I was looking for a balance between signal control (EQ,
compressors, limiters) and signal modifiers like the phaser and
chorus, thinking this sort of balances the things we need to do one
most tracks. (Even though I've never used 5 on 1 track in my life!)

I'm open to any set of plugins that folks think make sense and that
everyone would have.

BTW - 25 tracks set up like this on my laptop used only about 45% CPU,
not the 80% I had guessed. Just wish the machine didn't hang!
