The Cargo Cult Spanner is a surround panner plug-ion d esigned by real post audio pros to solve real world problems, Spanner has redefined sound design, editing and mixing in surround.

It's a panner, sure, but that doesn't even scratch the surface of what this thing can do. With complete, independent control of every channel, several industry-first features and an incredibly simple interface, it is possibly the most versatile plugin in your arsenal.

Upsize and downmix - mono thru 7.1.2

Spanner can upsize or downsize, to and from all common track formats, allowing you to actually 'pan' an LCR into the 7.0 mix bus, or temporarily send a 7.1 stem to a 5.1 output for monitoring.

Spanner has complete, continuous control over input gain and channel position so the downmix is infinitely flexible and even realtime automatable.

Spin, Rotate, Pinch, Fly-over

Spanner offers panning options that you won't find anywhere else. Rotate lets ambiences follow a camera move, while spin is continuously dizzying.

You can automate an entire stem to shift left, then right, then collapse into the centre.

Or you can engage the proprietary Balls-To-The-Wall mode which gives super discrete 3D fly-overs, minimising bleed between channels.

Dedicated iOS controller app

The purpose built iPad remote control app opens up powerful new workflows for the edit-room, the predub or the final mix.

It instantly follows the currently opened pro tools spanner instance so you never have to think about loading a surround panner... it's just always there when you need it.
