Best mix buss "swiss army" plugins

Curious to hear what everyone's using for mix buss processing: not as much in the standard compression/EQ world, but more in the "I can't quite do this with any other plugin" thing. Been looking into the Goodhertz Midside and it seems to be exactly that type of plugin, and it got me interested in what else is out there. Bonus points for mentioning smaller companies that don't rhyme with Caves

Been really digging contemporary colours. Makes me have to do less processing overall (which is good!)

There isn't really anything I can do without, but my most often used are

UA Precision Limiter
Limiter 6
UA 33609
Waves TG Mastering Chain (sorry!)
You can probably find a free M/S from Voxengo.

That's not what you asked for, so maybe look into Brainworx new Mastering Desk.

Wholegrain Digital DynPEQ...akin to a high end version of the TC Electronic's Finalizer in the box. Has mid / side, d.c. cut / a useful brickwall limiter for catching peaks (doesn't work on everything, but none the less pretty damn good) outstanding eq filters, and goes very deep into dynamic control. I would say it's really for mastering, but as a pre mastering tool it's excellent as well. The con's are, some will hate the gui, and it's pricey. For me, for pop mixes and masters, it's desert island material. ymmv.

I always have Klanghelm VUMT first in the chain.

Airwindows ClipOnly at the end but I never push into it.

Currently I'm running -

Airwindows Spiral2
Airwindows Buttercomp
Airwindows StudioTan

I don't like too much heavy processing on the buss, I prefer keeping it subtle but it depends what the song calls for.. I am most likely going to get crave eq as I'd like a low cpu eq option for making small adjustments that I really trust in but generally I like it simple.

I'm using Goodhertz "Tone Control" to make balance at very first of mixing.

Gotta say so great seeing a lot of love for Airwindows on GS. Hope people are contributing to his Patreon....

I have never heard of these guys. I need to look into how pricey. Sometimes pricey bad GUI plugins are secret weapons
