Precision Mix Rack Collection gives Apollo and UAD users an intuitive and impressive sounding tool set right out of the box. The Precision Mix Rack Collection includes the Precision Channel Strip, Precision Delay Modulation/Delay Modulation Long, and Precision Reflection Engine plug-ins.
The new plug-ins in the Precision Mix Rack Collection replace the old EX-1, DM-1, DM-1L, and RS-1 plug-ins derived from the CS-1. The original CS-1 is still included.
In addition to graphic updates, the Precision Mix Rack Collection has many new features, intuitive workflow improvements, and some sonic enhancements too.
Precision Channel Strip has better sounding EQ filters, the ability to swap EQ/dynamics routing, auto makeup gain bypass, as well as easy to read Precision metering, for both signal I/O levels and gain reduction.
The Precision Delay Mod plug-ins include expanded delay times, dub-style delay input mutes, a sweepable 12 dB per octave high pass filter, wet/solo, linking of delay/mute/pan controls, plus a new, true ping pong delay mode (the previous Ping Pong mode is now correctly named "Crossover Delay").
The original DM-1's three Chorus modes were of all the same underlying topology, as were the two Flanger modes. Previously, changing the chorus/flanger modes simply updated the parameters but not the topology. With Precision Delay Mod, the Mode menu changes the topology only. Presets are provided for a variety of chorus and flanging effects.
No. The Precision Mix Rack Collection replaces the discontinued EX-1, DM-1, DM-1L, and RS-1 plug-ins, but not the CS-1 plug-in itself. The CS-1 is still available for those who want an exact sonic match for older sessions containing the EX-1/DM-1/DM-1L/RS-1.
For compatibility with older sessions, EX-1/DM-1/DM-1L/RS-1 presets can be loaded into CS-1.
Yes. When sessions containing the discontinued EX-1, DM-1, DM-1L, and RS-1 plug-ins are loaded in UAD v8.2 (and higher), the discontinued plug-ins, and their settings and presets, are automatically migrated to their newer Precision Mix Rack Collection replacements.
For complete details about automatic migration of older sessions containing EX-1, DM-1, DM-1L, and RS-1 plug-ins to Precision Mix Rack Collection plug-ins, including instructions for retaining exact prior sonics (if desired), see the “CS-1 Compatibility with Prior Sessions” section at the back of the “CS-1 Channel Strip” chapter in the UAD Plug-Ins Manual.
