    Hi Brandon, I do something similar to you.

    First, if the parts have different volumes, I cut the tracks and change the levels of the individual regions.
    Then I often use the Vocal Rider though I always hope I don't have to. I'm most often too lazy to use automation.
    Next is a SSL style compressor with slow attack and release (e.g. 40 ms) to get an overall consistent level.
    Then I use the Fabfilter C2 as a very fast compressor to tame transients.
    Last is a typical vocal compressor (I often use Plugin Alliance Vertigo VSC-2 for that).
    All compressors are usually on 4:1 with the needle barely moving.

    Cheers,
    Guido
