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

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.

Unique

The depth and movement that this thing creates is completely unique, nothing like it at all. Absolutely essential for producers.

I didn’t even dream of panning like this.

This is not just left to right -It’s swirls around your head 360 degrees in directions I didn’t think possible without a surround system. Its quite an interesting illusion.
The gui and controls are great at showing you what is happening with the pans animated locations.
like a retro vision of the Leslie speaker of the future.
I use this A LOT. I just love watching those leds spin and dance !

It has a sound

You may not think much of panning plugins but this device has a distinct mojo to it. Very groovy!

Creates huge depth and space on delay and reverb

A friend of mine was interning at a studio in Toronto in the 90’s and they had a hardware unit like this. It was an early introduction to utilizing special placement and depth for me, and a valuable lesson in spacial placement. I’ve been recreating the type of panning that I heard coming from this effects unit until now but there was always something missing… UAD has managed to capture the colouration that this unit imparts while it swirls and swooshes past. It’s capable of making a super wide mix without sounding flat and really has a vibe of its own.

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.

Love this Panner!

Very happy with this Panner! It sounds just awesome!

Running perfectly fine here on two of my setups.
Runinning macOS Monterey 12.2.1 and Studio One 5.5

No GUI issues at all!

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
