    I would pick my Cakewalk CA2A compressor. Simple to dial in, adds a nice flavour to everything, the harmonics are very nice.

    I guess I'll take Adam Monroe's Austrian Grand. Or a good channel strip. Is that cheating?

    Are we limited to processor plugins or can we pick from VSTi's, too?
    Intel i5 3.1ghz, Win7 Home Premium 64 bit, 16gb RAM, focusrite saffire pro40, Cubase 7.5, lazy pit bull (gets it from her mother).

    I would go with a good compressor myself. Waves API 2500 is my 'go-to' comp.

    This desert island still has a daw with stock VST's right?
    PC Win10-64-24G i7-4790k/Cubase 10 Pro 64-bit/2-Steinberg UR824's/ADAM A7x/Event TR8/SS Trigger Plat Deluxe/Melodyne 5 Studio/Other things that don't mean anything if a client shows up not knowing what it wants.

    Since this desert island obviously has electricity, I'm talking all of my real drums and amps and will just record there like I do here. No magic VSTs required.

    The one plug that's on everything these days is the Eventide Ultraverb. Every time I stick another brand on I eventually switch it back. I have been using a lot of Nebula recently which opens up a whole lot of territory.
