    For soft saturation jobs, PSP mixsaturator.

    Harder stuff, CamelPhat and Voxengo Boogex. Boogex works with impulses (it's a guitar cabinet modelling kind of plug in) so you can get plenty of variety with it. Try using delays with that, or even speech samples!

    Also the Korg MS20 fx variation from the Korg Legacy collection has a meaty overdrive, but I haven't found a way to soften it, it's really really heavy. Oh yeah and Fruity's waveshaper too.
