Super handy free plugin that lets you load in photos of your outboard gear into the session.

Genius

 2 - Waves API Collection

Waves have totally nailed the sound of the API EQs, so much so we were stunned...

Check out the shootout we did against the real thing to see what we mean.

Waves Vocal and Bass Rider

While we have been fans of automating vocal levels by hand we recently had a session that we didn't have the time required to do this.   So scratching our heads for a bit we remembered about Waves vocal rider and decided to give it a go (and compare it to some of the tracks we had already automated by hand).   Suffice to say we were impressed.   It's a really useful too to have on hand, especially for BVs that might otherwise be unattended or rely solely on a compressor to even out the dynamics.

Waves also do a Bass rider, which, no surprises is specialised for smoothing out bass

So we'd recommend you give it a go and blind test it against your manual automation.
