Amplify Emotion with Motion


Brauer Motion takes panning into a new world of spherical motion that goes beyond conventional left/right panning. Now sounds can move within a mix, whether as a subtle, psycho-acoustic effect applied to pads and reverb, or extreme roller-coaster movement that spins and energizes.

Created with Grammy® winner Michael Brauer—who is famous for his use of space on mixes for Coldplay, Florence & the Machine, and John Mayer—this plugin is all about creative inspiration. It’s like no other tool in your toolkit.

  • Space—the Final Frontier

    The right use of space can quickly take a mix from dull to exciting. Yet unlike EQ, dynamics, or reverb/delay, using motion to enhance mixes is relatively unexplored. By incorporating flexible, novel, sophisticated auto-panning, Brauer Motion provides a new dimension to mixes.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Place Your Vocals Perfectly

    Move background vocals around, to keep the center open for the lead vocal. Keep a dry sound in one place, and rotate processed sound around it. Use the sidechain to place one sound’s position by another sound.

  • Don’t Let Your Percussion Be Static

    Add spherical motion to percussion sounds like h-hats or shakers, to prevent them from sounding static. With two panners and sync-to-tempo, the panning can be subtle, or even create polyrhythmic panning that reinforces the rhythm.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Add Excitement and Life to Pads

    Just as the regular motion of ocean waves creates a feeling of peace, motion in pads can do the same. Or, add a more rhythmic quality to the panning, to impart excitement and passion to the sound.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Presets by Top Producers & Engineers

    The 80 presets from award-winning mix engineers Tom Elmhirst, Dave Pensado, Tony Maserati, and Michael Brauer himself are like having a graduate course in what Brauer Motion can do. Use them as is, or reverse-engineer them to understand the full capabilities of this ingenious plugin.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
