I used to use the Virtual Precision Instruments Loudness Maximizer in combination with the FabFilter Pro-L. The VPI LM still holds up really well given its age (and price) and it's something few people have. It's won a lot of client audition shootouts. It's the last 32 bit plug that sees use here because it's so well written and fast to get right.
The FF L2 is very good but I can usually get where I need to go these days with just Limitless 95% of the time. Fully understanding what Limitless can do, and it's a lot, really helps. It's a deep processor if you want to dive in to it and it's worth the time and effort. Processing done before the limiter makes a big difference in where you can end up, if the mix is conducive to it. Not all mixes are.
