Soundtoys PanMan takes the supposedly simple process of moving audio back and forth in the stereo field and gives it that special touch that you've come to expect from our twisted minds. It features an over the top range of panning modes to recreate classic analog auto-panners plus some of the cool modes from our other plugs to push it a bit further into the future. With MIDI sync to tempo, preset storage, dynamic control, and automation you get modern innovation alongside the classic features from hard to find vintage analog hardware. Control width, speed, direction and more with the most full featured panner you've ever seen.
PanMan pulls some of the coolest features from the coolest classics. What? There were classic auto-panners? Yep! Two of the most used were the Spanner, and the PanScan. They were the standards back the ancient times, and we tracked them down and dug into them. One of the coolest features comes from the PanScan and can now be found in PanMan. The trigger divider. What the heck does it do? We'll it let's you set the number of triggers it takes to move to the next pan position. That way you can set it to move from left to right every third trigger. Sounds simple but it's oh so cool. Toss in a bit of our classic analog mode for a real analog sound and you got vintage panning at it's best. Did we mention we even added a trigger filter so you can choose what frequency range the trigger listens for? That's right. We rock.
Not to be outdone we've also put in super advanced rhythmic modes. Two different rhythm modes that give you outrageous panning options. A "Step" mode that lets you choose a new position on each beat and sync it to MIDI. Fully programmable or the easy to use step selector let you pan the way you wanna pan. Then a "Shape" rhythm mode that lets you pan in classic shapes for back and forth, left to right, and right to left style panning locked to MIDI and choosing note values or programming your own rhythm. Outrageous? Maybe, but we don't want nobody whining that they can't pan like they want to.
Its a Pandemic
Like it wasn't enough, you can also control width, speed and offset position with dynamics. You can set your pan to only pan on the left side. You can automate the offset and actually pan your pan. That's a double pan that's fully pannable. Ouch. Broke my brain. OK, so needless to say this plug-in has your pan handled and if you feel overwhelmed then just pop open the preset manager and try starting with one of our lovely and talented presets to get you going. It's Pantastic! It's Pantabulous! It's a freakin Pandemic!!
