    Very short delay... Envelope filter... flanger... phaser... pitch shifter... funky compressions... ect
  3. It really depends what you like. i personally prefer using an enlvelope filter or wah pedal when slapping.

    Also, try a good compressor and an EQ, it can make your slap sound more crisp and sharp by evening out the levels.
  4. there are very few effects that i cant make cool via slap. i dont like octavers/harmonizers, and i dont like ring mods. anything else, i can use for slap.

    my favorites are: eq, envelope, od, synths, and really nasty fuzzes.
