If you have a great mix, you can get by with a few simple tools to create a listenable master. Have you tried it? Try using the bare minimum. When applying EQ, get it where you like it, then back off a couple db. When you get the compressor where you like it, back off the threshold. I often go with a simplified approach. Not always, but more often than not. Using some restraint with all your processing is a good starting point.
