Any certain compressors or EQs (or other favorites) that you tend to reach for first on Bass guitars, guitars, vox, drums, etc?
The first thing I do is listen with no processing, then determine which piece of gear I'll go to. For bass, it's usually a Fairchild or DBX 160. I really like 1176's. They work great on guitars and drums. Fairchild or LA-2A on vocals. I have an API Lunchbox with 2 512b mic pre's and 2 560 EQ. The 560's work well on almost everything.
