Exactly. There are ridiculous amounts of plugins, that making lists can get out of hand pretty quickly.

I've found these are pretty solid. You need Pluggo to run them.

Stillwell Audio - It's About The Sound

Just bought their 'Event Horizon' today. Man, that thing has got AMAZING transparency. Best plugin limiter I've ever come across...I can easily get -9.0dB RMS without ANY unwanted nasties....it blows 'Waves' out of the water (pun intended).

Check out their other plugs too. All very cool.

There seems to be such a division in opinion on these stillwell plugs.
I'm still not sure if I should bite the bullet. Guess I should probably try a demo
Well, I have both plugs and I've done an A-B test in Logic and to my ears the Stillwell produces a cleaner, more defined sound. By that I mean the top end is still clear, snares and claps are still snapping and the bass end remains in tact.

On the Xenon, although it's still a good plug, I find it colours the sound more than the Event Horizon.

Just my opinion of course...

I'd say give it a try and see what you think for yourself

Noone mentioned URS yet? Classic Console Strip Pro is one of the comps/filter I use the most.

Here's a not so well known effect . Time Freezer .

TimeFreezer - Audio and Music Instruments

PSPAudioware's plugins .

PSPaudioware.com - audio processors and effects plug-ins in VST, DirectX, MAS, AudioUnit, RTAS format for Mac and PC

Might be nice if that list was alphabetical .

Right done alphabetically (*awaits pat on back)

Perhaps now the challenge is to find demos of plugins with missing letters??

McDSP plugs are the best I've used so far, Pro Tools only though unfortunately for non-PT people.
