    Single rack, and to be honest I want something that colours my tone, something that I can squish the hell out of my signal.

    distressor, if you can afford one...
    dbx, if you want something cheaper but effective...

    Hmm...I've been doing research on this and here is what I have been told.

    As a good transparent effect to level gain that is always on, a rackmout will work well. People seem to recomend the RNC and the dbx items (the higher one being the dbx 160A). If you want this squish to be always on, the this is fine too.

    Others say to get a pedal effect for the squish effect- easier to toggle on and off. I really haven't delved into this yet.

    You have probably already considered this, but just in case...
