Phlox Phaser update – first of the ‘floral series’ iOS effects apps gets AU support

Bells and whistles are all very well in your software but, when a developer tries to add every conceivable feature into an application, things can get just too complicated. You end up with a maze of choices, 90% of which you might never use. That's not a criticism anyone is going to level at the iOS audio effects apps from developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews. I've looked at a number of these 'floral series' apps here on the blog - Phlox Phaser, Dahlia Delay, Tiger-lily Tremolo, … [Read more...]

Dahlia Delay update – streamlined iOS delay app gets AU support

I've reviewed all iOS music apps from developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews at one stage or another on the blog. Cactus Chorus and Phlox Phaser were followed up with the equally floral themed Buttercup Bitcrush soon afterwards. There is also Saffron Saturator and Dahlia Delay in the same series. The apps names give a clear indication of the effects types but don't be put off by the flora theme or the very streamlined-looking user interface; these are all apps that punch well above … [Read more...]

Phlox Phaser update – AUv.3 support added to compact iOS phaser effect app

Saffron Saturator update – the ‘flora’ project iOS music apps start to go AU

Back in 2015, developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews released a series of iOS audio effects apps with a naming convention based on a floral theme. No, I've no idea what the whole floral theme is about either but the apps - Cactus Chorus, Phlox Phaser, Buttercup Bitcrush, Dahlia Delay and Saffron Saturator - all followed a similar format; all supported Audiobus and IAA, all offered very simple user interfaces and all were available at a budget price (even for the App Store). I've … [Read more...]

Top 10 iOS music apps of 2015 – the Music App Blog selection

2015 has certainly been another eventful year of iOS music making. As ever, we have had to deal with the annual cycle of both hardware and software updates from Apple. Fortunately, the introduction of iOS9 proved to be somewhat less traumatic that the arrival of iOS8 twelve months previously. We have also seen the introduction of new iOS hardware with the obvious highlights being the first sight of 3D Touch on the new iPhones and the larger format iPad Pro. There are a few things that also … [Read more...]

Dahlia Delay update – streamlined iOS delay app gets its first update

I've reviewed a number of new iOS music apps from developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews over the last few weeks ago on the blog. Cactus Chorus and Phlox Phaser were followed up with the equally floral themed Buttercup Bitcrush soon afterwards. There is also Saffron Saturator and Dahlia Delay in the same series. The apps names give a clear indication of the effects types but don't be put off by the flora theme or the very streamlined-looking user interface; these are all apps that … [Read more...]

Saffron Saturator review – the fifth ‘flora’ project iOS music app hits the App Store

As I mentioned at the end of my review of Dahlia Delay by developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews just a week or so ago, the pair had a further iOS audio effects app in the pipeline; Saffron Saturator. No, I've no idea what the whole floral theme is about either but Saffron Saturator hit the App Store yesterday. It follows a similar format to all the other apps in the series - Cactus Chorus, Phlox Phaser, Buttercup Bitcrush and Dahlia Delay. As the names might suggest, the first four … [Read more...]

Dahlia Delay review – the ‘flora’ project adds a new app to its streamlined iOS audio effects series

I reviewed two new iOS audio effects apps from developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews a few weeks ago on the blog - Cactus Chorus and Phlox Phaser - and the team followed up with the equally floral themed Buttercup Bitcrush soon afterwards. Surprise, surprise, these are chorus, phaser and bit reduction effects respectively. All three apps are universal, require iOS7.0 or later and are supplied with Audiobus and IAA support... and, for the budget conscious, all are currently priced at … [Read more...]
