I'll discuss it then.  It's a HORRIBLE idea!  If your track are already
recorded, you won't even need EQ on every channel.  And your choice of
an EQ to be the default is unusable.  There's a reason that 4 band
(quasi-)parametrics are the standard. . .

As for assembling ANY batch of "suggested" plugins, that puts a huge
obligation on every developer, since they would be expected by newbies
to have tested those suggested plugins on every possible distro, and
every possible piece of hardware.  That's what the forums are for, but
even at that, it's still up to the end user to install it, and test it
on their hardware, with their distro.

My bands, CD projects, music, news, and pictures:

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
