Good question!  I have a standard setup I use for FLoops wherein I have 6
tracks open.  For the Master FX, I have the dB meter and big clock open, and
for my 6 tracks, I have each one loaded with Parametric EQ first and
Compression second.

At this point, I have yet to add any more than 2 additional FX as I really
don't need any more than 4.  I am kind of the feeling that if I can't get
the sound I am listening for within 4 effects, there's a good chance I am
going about the sounds' manufacture in the wrong fashion.

I guess if one makes dance or electronica all the time, FX are something to
be heaped on lavishly, but sometimes I like a bass to sound like a bass, and
drums to sound like drums, not like crazed, digital blips.

In light of all this, I may wish one day that I had bought into Gigasampler,
because it is supposed to be the best at reproducing real instruments . . .
