This module allows you to pan a signal between two output channels, on each of its top and bottom channels, over a period of time determined by the time knob.

When a trigger is received via the input, or using the T button, the input signal will pan from one of the outputs to the other one, over a period of time ranging from 0.1 seconds all the way up to 60 minutes. This is great for automating gradual spatial transitions, or moving a sound's position in the mix during a performance. You can also use this to send a signal to different destinations for processing, for example to use different filters or effects. It's also possible to just fade a signal in and out by leaving one of the outputs disconnected. The blue meters next to the outputs give visual feedback about the position of the signals.

The time knob sets the transition time. It starts in seconds, and switches to minutes when it goes above 60. Notice that the units label below the display will change to reflect this, as well as the tooltip when you move the knob. If you want to enter a specific time value for the knob, type the number of minutes, followed by a period and the number of seconds, adding a leading zero if necessary. For example, if you want a time of one minute and 9 seconds, type 1.09 and hit enter.

You can select the pan law using the switch on the left side, between linear and power panning. There is also an output that sends a trigger when the transition finishes. This is useful for cascading units, or you can even reconnect this trigger to the trigger input to generate continuous back and forth transitions, for example for continuous fast panning back and forth between two speakers.

The toggle below the dividing line allows you to pass the trigger of the upper channel to the lower one.
