Today is experiment with this neat Copicat VST plugin. It's a WEM Copicat analog (tape) delay emulator. And it sounds pretty cool. I don't know if it sounds substantially cooler than the built-in "analog" delay inside of Samplitude, but it's pretty cool.
Alan Douches at West Westside Music is very liberal in his advice about compressing mixes before mastering. The real answer is that you really should be very conservative in your buss compression before sending off to mastering.
