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£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 over the week-end to v.1.1. There is no change to the super-simple approach or control set; just a few tweaks under the hood to improve performance and iron out a minor audio wrinkle. 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.
As with all the apps within the series, Tiger-lily Tremolo is universal, requires iOS7.0 or later and is supplied with Audiobus and IAA support (indeed, you need to be using either or both of Audiobus or IAA to make use of these effects apps)… and, for the budget conscious, is currently priced at UK£0.79…. that’s the change from 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. At UK£0.79, 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 :-)
