It is more about technique/listening environment/mixing than the plugins themselves. :)
+100 !
I agree, it’s much more complicated than ‘what plug-ins?’ If used wrongly, any plug-in can destroy your sound!

Remember, every plug-in you introduce adds a little bit of noise :) They don’t “improve” sound, they manipulate it.

I have to say the Waves SSL bundle was a game changer for me. The closest thing to a real console eq I have used to date. You can be more aggressive with this eq without the harshness that generally goes along with digital eqs.

For me IK Multimedia T-RackS works as a huge timesaver in the mastering process. Most of the time a quick tweak of one of the presets gives a track a nice warmth, precence and loudness. To achieve a significantly better result, I would need to invest muuuch earlier in the signal chain than any plugin(s), which means better microphones and preamps for starters.
And of course every plugin “manipulates” the sound, that’s what they are made for. If it improves it or makes it worse only depends on the ears of the one controlling it.
