Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner®
Add 3D space and motion with a vintage, one‑of‑a‑kind processor.
Introduced in 1984, the Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner was a revolutionary analog auto-panner that created stunning, 3D-panning and modulation effects, imparting instant vibe and stereo character to any source.
Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces — the Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner plug-in is an exacting emulation of the ultra-rare hardware, and adds a number of "plug-in only" features for more creative options and truly unique soundscapes.
Now You Can:
Create stunning 3D effects on any instrument with bi‑directional "Round Sound" panning
Use the variable and shapeable LFO to control 3D panning
Gate-trigger panning effects from any input source and sync to DAW tempo
Stereo-ize a mono source, while adding the warm analog tone of the original hardware

A Rare Bird
The original Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner was a high-end outboard studio effects unit that offered both stereo and quad-stereo support. It achieved near-mythical status for its one-of-a-kind, proprietary 3D effects and its impressive tonal signature. The unit was marketed under two different brand names, Dytronics and Songbird, during its years of production. Today, the hardware units are exceedingly rare.
The UAD Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner plug-in provides multiple ways to control its panning effects — both standard and 3D. Trigger the panning from the built-in LFO, which you can adjust for speed, shape, amount, and depth, or gate-trigger it from any input source and adjust the sensitivity. The bi-directional, "Round Sound" panning yields a 3D sound stage unlike any other auto-panner available.
Best of Old and New
The UAD Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner gives you exclusive, “plug-in only” features that greatly enhance this one-of-a kind effect. Use the Sync function to match the the plug-in to your DAW so that panning effects lock to your song's tempo, or instantly re-patch the outputs, choosing from a variety of configurations including those from the original unit's quad-stereo network, for limitless panning possibilities.
“Nothing does the things the Cyclosonic can do in the way it does it.”
– Vance Powell (Jack White, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs)
