Those hardware compressors you have are just not suited for mastering work.
Wrong topology, low quality.
Analog mastering requires top analog gear.
At that point you are better off with software.
Just because it's analog doesn't mean it's better, in this case if it's low quality and has characteristic that are not suited for the task.
Also what AD DA converters are you using? If you are using ones that are not hi quality enough you are actually adding inaccuracies.
Top plugins costing slightly less then your hardware will obtain better results.
