Delay effects record a signal, then play it back at a user-selected time delay, often called delay time or delay length. A single delay of less than 35 milliseconds is called the double, because this effect makes the track sound like there are two of the same part being played or sung at basically the same time. A slapback delay is a single repeat, with a delay time over 35 milliseconds.

Slap back delay times of 35 to 75 milliseconds are good for thickening vocal or instrumental tracks, while delays of 125 to 350 milliseconds are useful for making a vocal or guitar track sound large. I'm going to open up this Extra Long delay plug-in that we've got here in Pro Tools. Now it's usually a good idea to set the delay time in relation to the beat and tempo of the song, like an eighth note, an eighth note triplet, or a 16th note. The rhyth...
