I don't use the vst plugin format but I suppose a lot of the choices are the same.
For mastering if I am EQing in the box i have had the best luck with:
Waves Linear Phase EQ
Q10 (for surgical stuff)
I haven't found any plugins I like for compression
For getting level I have tried a variety of things:
Sony Oxford Limiter
letting things just clip
I have been struggling with that issue. I really don't like the sound of actually limiting the mix. I feel like it is just turning down the kick and snare in the mix. I am developing a plugin for achieving level without limiting. So far the results have been good. I have been using it to master some recent stuff. I just mastered an EP for Jason Hill from Louis XIV. He has a new project called "Vicky Cryer" that is really cool. Check out the song "Girls" it is an amazing mix (mixed by Matt Radosevich) and a really cool song. It is a good example of what this new level boosting mastering plugin can do as well.
