Just place a "TRIM" plugin on each track with a SSL plug for example (after the wave of course) and se it to anywhere between -2 to -7 dbs. you have now the nice sauration from the plugin but not the nasty digital cliping and you can adjustt overall volume witth the PT fader to compensate for the trim.
Works GREAT try it !!
it also worked out fine for me when pulling down the output at the waves channel fader without using a trim plug any wrong with this method?
