Tiger-lily Tremolo update – the ‘flora’ project iOS music app gets some fixes

Download from iTunes App StoreI’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 SaturatorButtercup BitcrushDahlia Delay and Tiger-lily Tremolo – previously here on the blog and, at UK£0.79 each, they are about as an obvious casual purchase as you are likely to find.

The last of these – Tiger-lily Tremolo – received a minor update yesterday to v.2.0. There is no change to the super-simple approach or control set; just a few tweaks under the hood to improve performance. Apparently, this includes fine-tuning of the AUv3 support within Audiobus 3, performance tweaks and stability improvements. Even so, it’s good to see the flora series continuing to get development time. Like the other ‘flora series’ apps; that is, no frills, no fuss, and just a stripped-down series of controls so you can get to your sound as quickly as possible.

Tiger-lily Tremolo includes AUv.3 support… as shown here running within Cubasis.

As with all the apps within the series, Tiger-lily Tremolo is universal, requires iOS9.01 or later and is supplied with AU, Audiobus and IAA support… and, for the budget conscious, is currently priced at UK£1.99/US$1.99….  that’s a swap for your morning caffeine purchase :-)

Don’t let the price fool you into thinking that they might not cut it sonically; they all sound very good indeed. The controls are not unlike those you might find of a good guitar stomp-box type pedal; enough flexibility to get creative but still easy to use. If you haven’t yet given any of these ‘flora’ apps a try, then you really should….  like Cactus Chorus, Phlox Phaser, Buttercup Bitcrush, Saffron Saturator or Dahlia Delay, Tiger-lily Tremolo is not going to stretch your budget too far so don’t overthink it. If you fancy the occasional bit of audio wobbling, Tiger-lily Tremolo is just the thing but the whole series is well worth a look.
