I'd like to see:

1 - A compressor with a sidechain input (if one doesn't exist
    already). A multiband compressor with separate sidechain
    inputs would be very nice.

2 - Low pass and high pass filters with variable slopes and
    corner characteristics.

3 - A parametric EQ with proper compensation for the frequency response
    aliasing that occurs near the Nyquist frequency (a la Sony Oxford EQ).

4 - A level meter that detects intersample peaks.

5 - (Related to 4) A mastering limiter that uses upsampling to
    reduce aliasing and intersample clipping.
