I like to sum my drums, sum my vox, sum my effects, etc. Then, sum those to a common Aux In, and then assign THAT Aux In to the Main Output. This allows me to mult a final sum in a mix; it allows me flexability the Master Fader features do not allow if simply relying on that Output Buss. This is my personal, preferred manner of using a DAW, especially one like PT with it's excellent routing feature set.
Bearing in mind the plugins are *post fader* on the Master Fader - How many of you have your 2 bus comp/lim on a aux track rather than the master fader?

EDIT - sorry, I should have just posetd this Q here: Pro Tools Master fader question!
