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

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.

Trigger Warning

Trigger Warning

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.

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.

loving it

I had used the hardware version of this 20 years ago and always wondered if I'd find a plugin that might come close. This does all I need and has been so much fun to use

I thought a boring panner like everyone else, but no. This is really the panner we should all use, you can do it all

Really interesting is this one. I have many panner / stereo toys and this one is currently my favourite. Has a great analogue sound and fun to play around with. Highly recommended, well done Softube. Thanks UAD

Haven't stopped using it!

An excellent secret weapon. I have just finished mixing an ambient electronic music album and this was invaluable for adding subtle movement and 3D imaging to pads.

Unexpected !!!

I've used quite a few panners in the past, both hard & soft cause I'm a lot into psychoacoustics, never heard 'bout Dytronics until I saw as a plugin in UAD2 and I thought I'll give it a try. The presets don't do much justice to the power inside, so after working with it for a couple of weeks I was amazed at the potential of this engine, specially with headphones and a good 5.1 system. It works wonders on stereo speakers too. Give it a try !!!

FINALLY!!

This unit has been on my wish list as a plug in for over a decade - dreams do come true! Completely worth the wait - there is nothing else like this. Thanks UA for resurrecting a true classic that was well ahead of it's time...

Inspirational.

After getting the feel of the Cyclosonic Panner I am now thinking of things to write for the sole purpose of processing through the Panner.

Only panner you need

Very Useful Panning Tool.

This is a great panning tool. It is open to interpretation as a very imaginative tool for mixing. It can be both very subtle and dramatic. I have been missing a quality soft tool like this and am made up this has been released. It is being used in all my mixing instantly and I am only just beginning to appreciate what it can do applied creatively. It is a valuable addition and I instantly recognized it as such. Thanks.

This thing wraps the sound around your head

I thought this would be just another panner, but it's not. You literally feel the sound all over your head and it also imparts certain warmth to it. I think this is a useful tool in your arsenal if you want to add some psychedelia to your music.

Prima Panner

Leuk om in je plugin assortiment te hebben. Niet overal voor inzetbaar maar kan soms voor interessante resultaten zorgen.

prima ander soort panner

Leuke panner die echt iets anders doet dan wat al bestaat. Klinkt wel snel onnatuurlijk dus vooral interessant voor elektronische danceproducers en soundenigneers.
