Compressor: LADSPA SC4 and SC3 (the latter for being able to use

compressor, it lacks warmth which otoh can be very useful in some
situations. The Invada compressor is nice but it quickly starts to 'pump'.
EQ: I tend to use little EQ, basically only to sharpen off the edges.
Most of the time I just type EQ in Qtractor's plug-in search field and
pick one of which I deem useful. I don't really have a favorite.
Reverb: Freeverb and for the short reverbs I use TAP. Sometimes I use
other ones too, like gverb or the CAPS one.
My personal number 1 go-to effects are not part of the above list
though. Like Louigi I really dig the Calf Vintage Delay because it is
the only delay that allows me to set it to a certain BPM instead of ms.
And it sounds quite good too. And I use vocoders too, my fave is the MDA
LV2 Vocoder plug-in. Other effects I really like are the LADSPA Comb
Filter, TAP TubeWarmth, Calf Saturator (that one is awesome) and various
distortion/phaser/flanger plug-ins (Crossover distortion, Calf Phaser,
Guitarix distortion). And gates, sometimes you'll need a gate, but with
gates it is a bit the same as for EQ's in my case, I just grab what's
