Here's my setup..
I have a 48 input desk, but I mix in 1-32 only and leave the last 16 channels (33-48) for FX returns and the Parallel's (In the 33-48 small fader returns)

L=(large fader)
33 L Black Fulltone Tube Tape Echo fed from AUX 1
34 L White Fulltone Tube Tape Echo fed from AUX 1
35 L PCM 80 L Fed from the Stereo Cue L
36 L PCM 80 R Fed from the Stereo Cue R
37 L Echo Plate Right Fed from AUX 2 thru Roland SDE 1000 Delay (predelay)
38 L Echo Plate Left Fed from AUX 2 thru Roland SDE 1000 Delay (predelay)
39 L Fulltone Solid State Tape Echo 1 Fed From BUSS 15
40 L Fulltone Solid State Tape Echo 2 Fed From BUSS 16
41 L Pedal Loop 1 Fed from AUX 4
42 L Pedal Loop 2 Fed from AUX 4
43 L DN780 Left Fed from AUX 3
44 L DN780 Right Fed from AUX 3
45 L RAT>DM100 Fed from BUSS 23
46 L Grampian 666 Fed from BUSS 20
47 L EMI/Chandler TG-1 Left Fed from BUSS 27
48 L EMI/Chandler TG-1 Left Fed from BUSS 28

S=(small fader)
Parallels
33 S (Small Fader) Aphex Exciter Fed from BUSS 32
34 S DBX 500 Sub Synth fed from Buss 11
35 S CULTURE VULTURE L Fed From BUSS 29
36 S CULTURE VULTURE R Fed From BUSS 30
37 S Retro STA-LEVEL Fed from BUSS 13
38 S ACME OPTICON Fed from BUSS 12
39 S Transient Designer 1 Fed From Buss 9
40 S Transient Designer 2 Fed From Buss 10
41 S 33609 L Drum Parallel Fed from BUSS 1
42 S 33609 R Drum Parallel Fed from BUSS 2
43 S FATSO L Drum Crush Parallel Fed from BUSS 3
44 S FATSO R Drum Crush Parallel Fed from BUSS 4
45 S 33609 Band L Parallel fed from BUSS 5
46 S 33609 Band R Parallel fed from BUSS 6
47 S GML 8900 Vocal L Parallel Fed from BUSS 7
48 S GML 8900 Vocal R Parallel Fed from BUSS 8

Then there is 4 Stereo FX Returns,
1 Nothing currently.. (noisey maybe..)
2 Eventide H3000 Fed from BUSS 17-18
3 Bedini B.A.S.E. Fed from BUSS 21-22
4 PMC 90 Fed from BUSS 23-24 (i think...)

I only have 5 inserts in the desk all the time.. Things come and go but these stay..
3-KICK (Insert) Distressor>API 550b
4-SNARE (Insert) Distressor>API 550b
15-16 (Insert) Manley VariMu (Piano-B3 Keys...)
32 (Insert) Vocal Chandler RS124>Pultec EQP1a

And theres more...
But you get the idea..
