If you are comparing your stuff to commercial disks, I think its fair to guess that one big thing you are missing the mastering process. (Final compression, EQ, limiting, etc.)

If you didn't pay for the Waves software, destroy the disk, uninstall it, and don't steal software ever again. If you did, then good, because they are good plug-ins.

Its near impossible to recommend settings on your gear for your music without hearing anything. Most people here will tell you something along the lines of "turn the knobs until they are in the place that sounds the best" (and that is the truth). Practicing mixing and listening will only make you better.

If you post some material, perhaps I/we can give some more specific suggestions.
