Another recommendation for Fenix here.

However for hard rock, you may want some more agression, grab, or color from it - the CLG library has a lot of color, and the 4kC does good glue and punch.

Murano VCA section can add a nice punch and movement as well.

Or even try pairing something like Cytomics Glue for grab and Fenix for sheen and smoothing.

Great suggestions Brian. I would like to add the Blue mu and Opto 3a. Great sounding compression.

Thank you very much to all of you guys!!
I was planning on getting Fenix Red and Black from Alexb, but I'm a little bit confused because on his website it says that the Fenix bundle (Red+Black) is discontinued and it cost 50 Euros, (30 for Red only or black only)but...who would pay any money for a discontinued item? That doesn't make any sense. Does that mean that Red and Black are going to be discontinued? I don't understand. Maybe is that English is not my mother language and I'm not understanding the message.
I'm also thinking on getting Tim P. Opto 3a or maybe Blue to put it just before Red...If it's not going to be discontinued.
Again, thank you very, very much for the input.

That's exactly what I do, following a 4k bus. Then either the T95, Pearl, or MMeQ for some bottom, top, and little mid push.

idrummer : I think you'd have better results putting BlueMu in the chain compared to the Opto3a. The color and adjustable timings should be a better fit in most cases.

I think you have misread ...
from the site:
Available as single library (Black, Red) or as discounted bundle (FNX)

That's Discounted ... not Dis-continued.
important spelling difference for sure :P
