If we could think of making music as making food, what in your opinion would be the salt the enhances the flavor of the ingredients? about the "transparent compression", any ideas for good plugins?

Salt is distortion. Not enough is bland and uninteresting, too much is horrible and the difference between the two is a very fine line.

Most plugin compressors will do a good job of reducing dynamics without colouration. That is both their strength and their main weakness.

The compressors bundled with your DAW are almost guaranteed to sound pretty bland.
