As creatives, it’s up to us to inject excitement and intrigue into our music for our listeners.
Ear candy, reverb, or delay throws can spice up a mix with unexpected moments. And those moments can help keep your listener engaged.
Another way to add a sense of mystery and intrigue to a song is with Auto Panning. Auto Panning enables your tracks to drift around the stereo field, as if by magic.
But we’re not talking about drawing in Automation for your Pan knobs one node at a time. No, we’re talking about plugins that will do the hard work for you. In just seconds your tracks can be swirling around your listener at dizzying speeds!
Whether it’s a synth pad, guitar lead, or sound effect, Auto Panning can create some enchanting vibes for your tracks.
But when you look in Logic’s plugin folder, there’s not really a plugin called “Auto Panner,” is there?
This can lead users to assume there is no such Auto Panning function in Logic Pro. But that’s just not true!
In fact, there are 3 plugins I can immediately think of that send your tracks spinning. And it’s not complicated to set up (unless you’d like it to be).
Before you start eyeing yet another plugin to download or buy, watch today’s video. And let me take you through 3 of Logic’s awesome plugins for Auto Panning.
Stereo vibes are only a couple of clicks away 🙂

This is such a valuable bit of knowledge. Auto-panning is going to add a head-swaying world of dimension to my next mix. Thanks for sharing these hidden gems!
BTW Chris, I absolutely love your tutorials. I’ve now been following WLPR for a year and my mixes and masters are 500% better than they were last year. Your mastering template is my first go-to as soon as I’m done with a mix.
