: Hey there,
: As far as effects for slapping go, IMHO there's nothin' quite like the sound of an envelope follower. The flagship of this effect type is the much-revered (but quite hard to find) Mu-Tron. Bootsy Collins made enourmous waves with it back in the 70's, and Flea has been known to use to a great extent also. Check out his work in "Power of equality" (BloodSugarSexMagik) and hear for yourself.
: As far as "taming" the volume differences between fingerstyle and slap goes, if your compressor ain't makin' it, you should consider reviewing your right hand techinique when you slap. Some time ago I found out I got an overall much better tone AND a better volume balance by not slapping so goddamn hard.
: As always, just my $0.02. Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,

: El Pájaro
