Mixing/Mastering / Re: I need some serious help mixing ride cymbals

Try pulling down pins at the harsh frequencies- 1k, 4k, 6-7k
Accentuate the air 10-12k
And incorprate a compressor with a very fast attack and rhythmic release. Most of the harshness in a ride happens on the attack, so catching that but letting the rest of the ride live can help.

Multiband limiting can be a really powerful tool. The L316 by waves or the MCDSP ML4000 are great for this. I concur about mixing with your Plugs already on the Master buss. My end chain is usually:

SSL Mix Buss
Slate Tape Emulator (depending)
Metering Plug with brick wall limiter.

"Plucked" or "Struck" sounding synth sounds utilize a low pass gate for the effect. In modern analog synths the gate is triggered and an led flashes. The dimming of the led creates the musical and organic decay. Here's a link to the one in my modular-
Not sure how to do it with a soft synth, but I hope this helps!
