Yep, check out the UGen Dyno. Either the preset .limit() or .comp() should suit your needs.

Through the tutorial/documentation, I saw the .gain operator, but I'm thinking that I'll have a variable number of shreds, so figuring out the cumulative gain cuts in advance wouldn't make sense, and really, I'll mostly be in danger of clipping when the additive waves are in phase and frequency, but perhaps not elsewhere, but I wasn't seeing any obvious unit analyzers for compression or gain control.
