Tiger-lily Tremolo update – iOS tremolo effect app gets AUv3 support

I've no idea where the whole 'flora' theme comes from for developers Timothy Barraclough and Paul Mathews but there series of stripped-down, stompbox ethic, iOS audio effects apps are all very good indeed. I've reviewed all the apps in the series  - Cactus Chorus, Phlox Phaser, Saffron Saturator, Buttercup Bitcrush, Dahlia Delay and Tiger-lily Tremolo - previously here on the blog and, at UK£1.99/US$1.99 each, they are about as an obvious casual purchase as you are likely to find.

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).

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.
