In some of the blends, the incoming song may be too low. Or, I may have recorded it too low and I need to do some amplification. However, I also want a richer sound. Sometimes, for whatever reason, the mix sounds a little (only a little) hollow to me. I'm sure I could EQ it, but I'm looking for something a little easier to work with.

[/QUOTE]Multiband compression can help with this sort of thing...both for evening out the levels and smoothing the EQ differences between songs.
If you use fairly slow attack/release times, with moderate amounts of gain reduction, you can get a pleasent "automatic-equalization" effect without causing aubible "compression"-type artifacts (assuming you're using a good multiband compressor, of course).
The best multiband compressor plugins I've used are the ones from Waves (C4 and Linear Multiband...I prefer the latter) and McDSP.
