A single Delay of less than 35 milliseconds is called a Double because this effect makes the track sound like there are two of the same part being played and sung at basically the same time. A slap back Delay is a single repeat with a Delay time over 35 milliseconds. Slap back Delay times of 35-75 milliseconds are good for thickening vocal or instrumental tracks.
