lalalab by Savelii Kaliupanov

Savelii Kaliupanov strongly discourages you, or anyone, from playing with his new free app lalalab. I'm not even sure if that's reverse-psychology. The app appears to be a follow-up to his "barely musical audio-effect" ZhSh. The new lalalab is based in part on an algorithm in Deregulator, used here to create an unstable echo feedback effect. It is apparently so unstable that even with a limiter it somehow manages to create loud bursts. If you need random loud bursts in your Audiobus and IAA workflow, then lalalab has you covered.

There are some audio samples on the official website that start off tame to lull you into a false sense of security before bursting with those HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME moments of loud pain.

lalalab iTunes Description:

Attention and warning :)
You don’t want this app as your first musical effect, if you just want some new free app to love 10 minutes you need to skip this one. Program uses audio signal and sends it back to create echo effects and if you setup too much it can lead to loud volume bursts. At first you must understand what is Inter App Audio and Audiobus and use them with other apps.

Create long, rhythmically undetermined echoes with cautious and discreet implementation. Lalalab is effect based on part of Deregulator, but designed in “iced donuts” style like other my apps. Part of Deregulator’s engine is Echo with parameters “delay”, “feedback” and “speed” of changing random values.

App have limiter to suppress loud bursts, but you must be extremely careful anyway. It would be good if you connect your favourite limiter application after Lalalab to avoid unexpected kick in head.

Again about potentially dangerous feedback abilities - if you setup “feed” > 0.99 you’ll get guarantied loop and volume bursts up to silence in good case (limiter is killing volume) or damaged hardware or meatware (limiter fails or late). Use 0.99-1.22 for feedback only with randomisers enabled and strong sincere prayer.

The previous apps had more iced donuts yet this one has bigger donuts so it's not too bad.

Best used with a vacuum tube amplifier, preferably a low power one, to avoid transistor amp clipping damage to your tweeters.

Yup, as the guy above said. use this app with a vacuum cleaner.
I like this one a lot more than Deregulator.

Thanks Savelli!
I love this guy's "be careful, this might hurt you" approach to marketing. I wish Dunkin Donuts were so honest.
