I would like to hear this and perhaps learn to do it.

Yeah, if amplification is considered an effect then all other "effects" are useless. Nearly every single one of them (with the exception of passive tuned circuits)
have amplification as a fundamental building block, even if it's just a gain recovery stage. Hell, I even consider buffers amplifiers.

In my world view, functional blocks which are intended to preserve the original signal intact as possible are not effects. Preamps, mixers, amplifiers, etc are not effects in my opinionated definition.

So, let's say ignoring amplification & mixing as a given..

If it's the application of tools, ie: the resulting artifact that is considered an effect, I'll change my answer to distortion....

Then realize that such a limitation is impossible, because simply placing a speaker in a room is EQ & reverb. Hanging a mic in front of a speaker, then shifting it off axis is EQ. etc, etc, etc.

So I really feel that the only way for me to answer this question honestly rolls back to my original interpretation.
yeah, lets just stick with; "what's your favourite thing to do to an audio signal?"

Depends on my mood, really.

Now I'm just being difficult.
I have no suggestion for software.

So your favourite effect is pleasure. I should look up circuit diagrams for that. Anyone be interested in buying a pedal if I built it?

Yeah I second this, I am super down for a how to scramble memory indexes in a digital delay tutorial.

I also would like to hear about memory index scrambling.

Well you basically locate the memory chip and make connections between the legs that didn't previously exist.. thus creating a short circuit.. it's also sometimes called a shit shot.. this is has more to do with toy keyboards that have ROM and when you short the legs the memory gets scrambled until your reset the power.

Anyway.. the way this works is that several of the legs of the RAM chip give access to indices of memory locations. Different combinations return different values stored in the chip. So there's a sequence that steps through there various combinations to access of the samples of the audio stored in memory. When you short the legs it causes the chip to return the wrong samples or erroneous values which produces sounds from something like a ring modulator to full blown ear sizzling distortion.

I like the effects of "delay" the best, although my avatar would suggest differently....

if you're allowed to use only one 'effect' but as many times as you want, then delay would win the game for me

comb filtering, robot sounds, and other super short delay time effects
feedback loop mangling
stuttering
looping
pitch shifting
creating 'pads' using fade ins and heaps of feedback

Slew rate limiting and thermal drift are just a facets of distortion.
