Low Tides - Davisynth

Product Description

Low Tides

Smart. Simple. Sexy.

Low Tides uses advanced signal processing to display frequencies with 80% less latency compared to industry-standard tools. It features an intuitive interface to complement your creative flow and looks beautiful while doing it!

Speed Matters

Typical spectrum analyzers have up to half a second of latency, making it incredibly difficult to track down split-second issues in the mix. Low Tides fixes this, with a latency of less than the blink of an eye. This translates to better mixes and a smoother creative workflow.

Emphasis on Instruments

Most instruments start in the 20Hz to 2kHz range. Low Tides zooms into this range with 2.5x the resolution compared to industry leading analysis software. This, coupled with powerful harmonic inspection tools makes Low Tides the most effective way to analyze tracks within your DAW.


“I have tons of analyzers but this is so nice and simple to use and that pitch tracking range is amazing, super useful, well done!!!”

“Super smooth I love this thing!”

“I wish this was default in Ableton it’s so much nicer.”
