Get Slaphappy

Classic effect
‍Slapback delay is a timeless effect nearly as old as rock and roll itself!
No high end harshness
Our hysteresis algorithm emulates the saturation of an old reel-to-reel tape machine, smoothing out high frequencies.
Easy to use
Slapback delay has never been complicated. We’ve given you a handful of parameters to tweak and sweeten your sound, but left the majority of this time-tested effect as perfectly simple as it ever was.
Very low CPU usage
Unlike many other delay plugins, Slappy won’t drain your computer’s processing power.

Popularized in the 1950’s, slapback delay left an indelible mark on rock and roll history by appearing on seemingly every recording of the decade. From surf rock guitars to rockabilly vocals, this lightning-fast, single-repeat echo is almost impossible to hear without being transported to the days of malt shops, hulking Chevrolets, and leather jacketed rebels.

While slapback delay algorithms can result in harsh high end frequencies, Slappy employs the same hysteresis saturation used in our Bad Tape and Bad Tape 2 plugins. The end result is a smooth, warm delay that is as musical as it is nostalgic.

So go ahead! Slap it on!
