There isn’t an ‘ideal situation’, it’s just a question of using the right tools for the job. Some plugins like FabFilter’s are just easier and faster to use but they’re not going to tell you how much you need to compress or EQ a track to make it work best in the mix. You have to learn that the hard way i’m afraid.
I would highly recommend Fabfilter’s plugins though, their EQ is superb and the multiband compressor is literally a game changer once you learn what you can do with it.
I haven’t used Neutron yet but it looks good, although i’ve heard it absolutely batters your processor.
