Yeah, just set the auxes post-everything. Sounds like a perfect situation to use an aux.

In the majority of the higher end consoles, the differences between an aux and a matrix are essentially nil. I would use post fade auxes and set the post point to after everything. You could even setup the aux and then pull it off the channel strip if you want – that way it can’t be messed with.

You could very well use a matrix as well — in this case there may be no difference. I believe with matrixes you may not choose where you take the signal (post HPF, post eq, post comp, etc) but I could be wrong. In this case since you want post everything you might as well use a matrix if that’s the way you prefer to think about them, but it’s the same as an aux with slightly less flexibility.
