The Hard VCA settings are magical with the right attack and release times, esp. with a gentle knee. Rock stuff really seems to come alive with that in the chain.
I usually follow the trakkers with a Manley stereo Pultec. I know those don't get much respect around here, but in my sheltered little world, my mixes have sounded better since I began relying on the Trakker/Pultec mix chain.
