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.

Best of Old and New

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.

Spatialisation instantanée

Le Cyclosonic Panner de Dytronics offre au mixage une dose de spatialisation instantanée. Attention, cependant : comme tout traitement sonore, il faut prendre le temps d'en maîtriser les paramètres pour en optimiser l'effet, et notamment choisir les pistes qui conviennent.

This plug-in does not work in Logic

Nothing. I just spent some cash on this, thinking it would be cool, but it's just black. No knobs. no panning. nothing. I updated everything (which was a headache in itself this time until I ran scripts in the terminal because all of the sudden my Apollo Twin and UDA-2 Satellite stopped working. ugh!

Bug in this Plugin!

The plugin doesn't display properly in LUNA when I go to use it. All my other plugins are working fine. I've done everything I can think of - updated my plugins, rebooted LUNA, rebooted my Apollo X4, rebooted my computer. Nothing works - other than the title bar, the plugin displays as an empty, transparent box on the screen - the controls are not visible.

Fun Hidden Gem

Its pretty easy to pass this plugin up, Id argue just about anything is more exciting than a panner. Theres most likely the stock one in your daw and a collection of other 3rd party plugs that sport more features but the dytronics panner has some unique tricks up its sleeve. Give it a try! The different stereo and pan modes are sure to treat you well

great sound but

after the last update the Dytronics series has problems, in practice when the plugin is opened only the black screen appears and therefore I cannot use the various parameters this is very serious I hope that uad put an end
to this problem to date I do not know if it is so in other plugins I hope not

Dytronics "Must have" gear

Dytronics" gear is not too complicated but GREAT ! The possibilities of Dytronics are easy too understand, the effect is better than you can dream...Less is more...you do not drown in features, but the results will stunn you...

Stunning echo / panning effect

Not for every song - and it admittedly is more of a 'toy' than a 'workhorse' - but when this works, it changes rhythm (guitar or drums) from dull to fantastic.

Cool!

Maybe a niche plugin, but it has the ability to provide just a bit of Cool when needed.

Unique

Great plug-in for adding headphone candy. Restraint is the key (for me anyway).

Ein großartiges Spielzeug

der Panner macht aus einem langweiligen Loop-großartige Sounds und mit Automationen geht noch mehr.

Its own specialty

Redo a review from months ago. When put in circular mode, it actually manipulates the phase of the input signals so that the out-of-phase summation creates the illusion that the sound is coming from the back. It can even be programmed to a figure-8 movement. Mixing With Mike did a super tutorial on its usage. Check it out!

Use with with Ableton Lfo

I assign some Lfo into cyclosonic panner parameters and this thing just gets wild like nothing else.
