I think he/she should try balancing the mix,and don't push Plugins to hard.
They're not hardware,you don't get that sweet spot saturation with Plugins like you would with hardware.
Work on loudness once you get a nice and clean mix.
Then insert a limiter and turn the input knob up!
I used to do the Samething,screwing up my mixes.
Used high quality Plugins,some Plugins have a lot of alaising noise!
Demo these compressors and replace all the compressor Plugins you are currently using with these...
Demo waves API 2500,PSP old timer,the glue,vertigo vsc1.
You get 2 weeks of trail time,there known to be very clean compressors.
Ps.you can clip a channel but you can't clip the 32 bit float summing engine.
The channel gets clips before its summed.32 bit float is summing distorted clipped channels,with massive head room to spare!
Lower channel and plugin levels(Plugins can clip to)(they are 32 bit,but not 32 bit 'FLOAT').
THE SUMMING ENGINE IS THE ONLY THING FLOATING...
Just get it summed clean,then turn up the input on the 2 buss limiter!
