    A friend just bought a project pack, got the free LA2A and wondered what would be good for buying and downloading expressly for mastering?

    I recommended

    Precision Limiter
    Precision EQ

    At least that is what I have used when not analog....and of course an electric cowbell

    Looks like you already recommended the ones that would be decent for mastering. Maybe the cambridge eq, but I prefer the precision eq to the cambridge.

    The Precision stuff (EQ & limiter) are must-haves. The Pultec can be awfully handy also.

    The Fairchild...

    If you're looking for that "vintage" sound with the lows cut up a bit... I dunno... I've used it a few times for some M/S work, but I really don't care for it at the mastering stage at all.

    Mixing is another story...

    This is it right here^.
    Fairchild is great for bass a lot of times; not so much likey over an entire mix (usually). The LA2A is another greatformixingnotformastering plugin. Maybe UA should develop a "precision" compressor? I'd buy it twice.
