Preamps: HO Vintage73!, HO TeeGee MK2, HO V72, HO Mojo Libraries (which sample sound of compressors, preamps, eqs..etc): TeeGee Mk1 Mojo, 5033 Mojo, Summo, Stooder, etc.. they're cheap and You can get nice discount
Tape: CDS R2R AND Tapebooster!, HO tape libs (start with numbers 2, 5, then maybe 7), AlexB TSX
Tubes: CDS Vintage Tube Collection AND Tubebooster!
Consoles: AlexB CLC, HO Summo, (don't use consoles much these days..probably CDS consoles are great, but I yet have to try them - I'd first try the Globe)
I also recommend trying at least a few Henry Olonga Quick mix libraries - there are a few flavours (A*I 550a, N**e portico 5033, gml) of presets designed to eq different instruments (bass, acoustic guitars, piano, brass, vocals.. etc. - it does work great, if You need to shape Your track quickly and don't want to open 5 instances of nebula just to eq a track). Also, I strongly recommend trying some of these "other" category libraries like: Cupwise Custom Tremolos, AlexB Vintage Synth Filters (best in computer fx filters on earth).. there are more but these are veeeery nice.

I should have written about CDS w295 but I still don't have it.. generally with eqs is that You need to find suitable one to a particular track, so it's best to have many options.. by the way, sneaky, what is: drhv tubes??
