Dytronics Cyclosonic Panner®
Dytronics® Cyclosonic Panner

Ruff in the jungle? Now it is a bit more ruffer. It comes and goes, turns and flys, dives and jumps.
The most coolest panner what is on planet earth!
Super Great Effect. I use it a lot on guitar and organ. Bravo
The Chosen One
Great for Vocals, Drums, and of course Instruments. I've been using the demo and have multiple vouchers to redeem so of course this happens to be the product of choice. Applying this plug in alone to a track without using the stereo effects gives the sound a unique character. All the software I purchase is purposeful rather than impulsive, for me to write a review and recommend the product says enough. - Can be used in all genres, this tool is simple and resourceful. Must Have -
Devo ancora capire esattamente il potenziale di questo plugin.
Sicuramente interessante per creare effetti stereo.
Con calma troverò sicuramente l'utilizzo più appropriato.
From Subtle to Sublime
This effect can add tremendous panning or just a taste of movement to add space and sparkle to a mix. I've been using it on closed hats to move them across the stereo field in subtle increments. The motion adds a hint of spice to the mix.
Do not rush to cut boring tracks!
It is difficult to overestimate the things that are able to give new unexpected solutions for seemingly hopelessly boring tracks. Ditronics Panner is capable of much.
UA, again what you need!
Does exactly what it says on the box. Sounds can now spin amongst your stereo field like a whirling dervish caught in a vortex
It can be much more subtle as well
It’s also easy to use. What’s not to Like ?
TAKE IT FOR A SPIN !
it's like a Christmas present
Did you happen to receive a long-wanted toy? there he is! perfect for psychedelic, electronic, but great productions to add spice to any type of music !!! thanks UAD.
Does much more than simply pan. It really is incredible the depth, width & 3D quality that it gives whatever it is applied to. Essential to give additional interest to any mix.
Does the Job
Always wanted the hardware but this will do. This does the job very well once you get familiar with the controls.
Does way more than I expected
I actually went into this plugin looking for a trem unit for guitar mostly, which it does exceptionally well, but it does so much more. A certain quality to the waveforms exists that you don't get in other plugins/units. I'm pretty sure it comes down to the modelling of the gain stages but who am I to say. A plugin that is useful in almost any mix or recording situation
The learning curve will amaze you
I’ve only used a few times yet the more I use in mixing I’m discovering new boundaries useful to say the least
More Human than Human
Very cool and unique. Another oddball goodie from UA
Flutters, stutters & others
The Cyclosonic is not for everyone or everything. But it is a lot of fun to find uses for. I found that when critical listening to mixes, I would reach for it when the mix needed a little movement on backing vocals, rhythmically or layered with synth parts.
If you are on a tight budget & looking to get really useful plug ins, this would not be where I spend my money.
Just awful to control.. sorry Softube and UA
This is now my number one UA plugin purchase regret.. So much so I am actually going to ask to see if I can swap for another plugin + whatever cost difference. I should have demoed it properly.. The issue is, that the time is from 30 seconds to 0.1 second, but the display field shows that in *percentage*, which is useless.. Rather than the actual time.. If it showed the actual time, one could set something suitable by using a tempo calculator.. The problem with the Sync option is that I saw 4 bars in the picture.. and presumed i could do 1/2/3/4 bars.. but it goes from one to 4 only.. and then no higher..So you can sync an auto pan at 1 bar or 4 but not in between, and everything else is under a bar (more useful for rhythmic effects/stutters etc). Softube had to be stubborn on this one instead of giving a full complement of tempo options.. They just had to follow the hardware.. This is exactly why we buy plugins, to get the good hardware sound but free ourselves of limitations.. Anyway.. It does more than pan, which is why i gave it an extra star.. I will never use it for auto panning, nor rhythmic effects as I already have much, much better plugins for the latter, but at least it's not only a one trick pony. Now.. I recently bought WAVES brauer motion for $29 on sale.. THAT is a pan plugin.. and i am not a huge waves fan.. But that was a bargain, and makes this softube plugin look like a joke.. I mean just demo it for yourself and see what I mean.. If you want a really good autopan plugin, that's the one I recommend, and advise you to skip this one completely. (OTOH the chorus by same company, also emulated by Softube, is really nice and lush - that one I can recommend and will do a separate review).
I have been happy with most every plugin that I have purchased from UA EXCEPT this one. Pretty underwhelming, might work for some synth. Overall, not a very useful plugin in actual use. For me, I wasted my money.....you win some.....you lose some.....
Extremely versatile and intricate panning
I own the Waves Brauer Motion panner and though I don't have any regrets with its quality, I find the Dytronics Cyclosonic panner to be more of a beast. Both are great plugins but the Dytronics sound is uniquely different and I haven't experienced any way to emulate the effect using Brauer Motion.
Both accomplish the same panning in the stereo field, but Dytronics definitely does it in a very distinct and unique way.
In comparison of CPU, Brauer Motion doesn't tax the processor much; but Dytronics being a UAD plugin obviously doesn't tax my CPU at all. Overall, I am pleased with the investment. It costs more, but my ears tell me it does more and it sounds very different.
Great creative fun with all things PAN shaped!!!
buy while you can stack your rack (bought with Tri Chorus.... brilliant fun!)
It's a magical tool for percussions loop!
Let your sound travel !
The most efficient panner I know, , including amazing3D possibilities and many more presets of modulation : a big success !!!
