This auto-pan effect provides several parameters to modulate the left/right stereo position. You can use presets or create individual curves for the modulation waveform. The plug-in also allows for chopping effects by linking the modulation of left and right channel.

The panning effect of this plug-in works only on stereo tracks.

Waveform display

Shows the shape of the modulation waveform and allows you to manually adjust the shape of the waveform. To draw an individual curve, click a node and move the mouse. To draw a straight line, Shift-click a node and move the mouse.

Waveform presets

Allows you to select presets for the modulation waveform.

  • Sine creates a smooth sweep.

  • Triangle creates a ramp, that is, a linear movement from full right to full left and back.

  • Pulse creates an instant jump to full right, then to full left, and then back to center.

  • Random One Shot creates a random curve. Click this button again to create a new random curve.

  • Random Continuous automatically creates a new random curve after each period.


Sets the offset for the starting point of the curve. If multiple AutoPan plug-ins are used on different tracks, for example, different offset settings for each track allow for a more organic overall sound.


If Sync is activated, this parameter multiplies the sync rate by the selected factor. This allows you to create very slow movements in panorama.


Sets the auto-pan speed and shows the movement within the panorama. If Sync is deactivated, the speed is set in Hertz. If Sync is activated, you can set the speed in tempo values.


Activates/Deactivates tempo sync.


If this button is activated, left and right channel are modulated simultaneously. This results in a chopping effect instead of auto-panning.

In this mode, Width sets the intensity of the volume modulation.


Sets the amount of deflection to the left and right side of the stereo panorama. If Link is activated, this parameter sets the intensity of the volume modulation.


If side-chaining is supported, the Width parameter can also be controlled from another signal source via the side-chain input. For a description of how to set up side-chain routing, see the Operation Manual.


Allows you to smooth the transition between individual steps of the panorama curve.
