Single Slapback on Kicks

What's Crackin' GS?

I was just f*cking around with this Kick I had while I was mixing a 2-bar loop I started in FL Studio. I wanted this kick just a tad more thicker than it was. I wanted to achieve this w/o really EQing' it. I started to experiment with different compressors ( Waves SSL & R Comp), but it wasn't really "doing it" for me.

After trial and error however, I stumbled upon using Waves SuperTap. Now I knew that previously when I wanted to give my snares a little more depth and 'oomph', I usually used this plugin with a 'slapback-like' setting. This time I tried it on the kick , and it apparently worked (with some tweaking).

My question is.. how many of you have ever tried this?
I'm just curious to know you guys' thoughts on this. Who knows.. I could be giving someone an alternative method to thicken up there kicks or snares and ****..

try using a reverb instead. Set the decay time to relatively fast, and shave off some hi end on the reverb. Now pull out the pre-delay slowly and stop JUST before you can hear a 'slap back.' It will accomplish what your trying to do with the delay, except itll be smoother and you'll have a lot more control as u can play with the decay time and hi frequency cut-off.
