You asked for it, so here it is. One of the few third party plugins I use regularly is the Waves SSL 400 Collection.  Featuring the eq and dynamics of both an E and G series SSL console, this plugin bundle gives you that analog sound and look of working on an SSL 4000. Will it turn your DAW into a $500,000 mixing console? No. But it will give some really nice processing that that just sounds oh so good.
