On macOS, the version three audio units (AUv3) listed below are contained in a container application. They can be installed in any location you want. They do not need to be installed in the standard plugins/components directory location. The application itself is the manual for the AU. It is helpful to open the application once beforing trying to use the audio unit. This seems to help the operating system locate the contained audio unit extension.
The AUv3 versions of the audio units are sandboxed apps and will only work in audio unit hosts that support sandboxed AU's. At this time, we've tested these AU's in Logic, MainStage, GarageBand, and Reaper on macOS. On iOS, almost every host supports these AU's.
LRC7 is a seven band EQ that is usable as a mono-mono, mono-stereo, or stereo-stereo effect.

NeSi xTrem is a stereo-stereo tremolo effect that uses FM based LFO's and includes VCA and low-pass gate based modulation of the audio signal volume. This provides a unique tremolo signature that is ideal for adding color and movement to instrument tracks.

PhaseDelayArray is a mess of swirling delayed reverberated madness. One the other hand, you can use it to provide some pretty subtle color. It consists of three basic effects chained together in a loop, reverberators, modulators, and a feedback delay. The reverberators have vibrato that can be applied to the sound as it passes trhrough them. The output wet signal can be tapped in the effect loop at four different locations.

GyroVibe is a chorus/vibrato Audio Unit for iOS. GyroVibe evokes the sound and textures of a classic vibrato chorus. It also contains multi-stage driven filters that will swirl and swoosh your instrument all over the stereo field. GyroVibe is perfect for adding depth and color to keyboards. It's equally adept at adding some psychedelic soul to guitars and bass. GyroVibe can be used in mono-to-mono, mono-to-stereo, or stereo-to-stereo settings. Several of the features work best with a stereo output.

LRC5 is a five band parametric EQ Audio Unit for iOS.
The App for LRC5 provides the documentation. To use LRC5, you will need an Audio Unit host or DAW.
LRC5 has been updated to version 1.8 which has several bug fixes. Along with the bug fixes, the issue with AU validation has been fixed and it should now be usable in your DAW without issue.
CuSnP is an Audio Unit for iOS. It provides sympathetic or resonant string simulation. It can simulate up to fourteen strings. I wrote CuSnP to use for intonation training for fretless and slide guitar. It can be useful for any instrument with "fluid" intonation. You can think of it as practicing in a room with a grand piano, except that CuSnP is easy to retune to any scale you want.
