ah - that would do it for drums, where the bass and snare peak levels are 
always going to be relatively high. When mixing down our stuff, these are the 
main cause of clipping - other than vocalists getting too close to the mic as 
they reach the lung-bursting bit...

I think it would be a fine name for the series, in the tradition of Barry's 
Satan Maximiser. That one gave our drummer a good laugh! If people don't know 
what SC sounds for, they'll probably never try one.

Is your plugin metadata thing able to categorise plugins by group in 
application menus? That way you could have all the compressors together, all 
the flangers, all the reverbs etc. Could be easier to find what you're 
looking for than strict alphabetical order.
