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.

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.

SuperFunPlug

Nice addition to my creative plug line up. Create space and depth on vox drums bass. Can be subtle and powerful and then straight up wack.

Panner, Why a Panner?

More than a panner, can add 3D space if required. Excellent little device.

Surprising

I thought, panner, wth do I need another panner for? Did the demo, had some vouchers... sold. It's much more than just a simpel panner. It can really add some cool effect, but also placement and movement in the mix. Try it.

I Question Your Commitment to customer satisfaction UAD

Finally broke down and and purchased this plugin a couple of months ago and to this day ive still not been able to see or use it, No GUI at all, only the outside boarder of one!! This is in your own system (LUNA) to top it off for which i use exclusively. How about in your 'Office Hours' YouTube show you hold weekly you address this issue and give updates to your loyal customers who have spent thousands of dollars of hard earned cash on your products and still look to you loyally as one of the premier plugin makers. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE!! If i could give no stars I would.

Good plugin but can not use it

I like it very much, it does his job very well, but since an half year, the screen is white and I can only use presets. UAD says: "We know that, but we will do nothing" So thank you UAD! Next time I will throw 125€ in my toilette and I have the same effect.

Disappointed

The plugin worked fine until the Big Sur update ...stopped working right after. Very disappointed with UAD that they haven't fixed the issues because I really like this plugin and used it extensively

what a delight!

I've been really pleased with this plugin. Other than for obvious panning uses, I've found it really nice before reverbs or after delays to give them a little more dimension.

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
