    I use gverb for mono tracks, freeverb for stereo, tape delay
simulation is really nice, SC4 for compression, TAP stereo echo for haas
effect (usually for acoustic rhythm guitar or occasionally for backing
vocals - read the docs on Tim's site), and TAP fractal doubler for some
backing vocals.  Those are my mainstays.  If you're going to use gverb
always add it first in the chain.
