Every effect has a range that the effect can be applied to the sound, also called its wet value.
Below are some effects you can use for your Sampler with effects assignment. More information of other effects can be found here.
Reverb is the persistance of a sound that continues after the original sound has ceased. It is made up of many echos bouncing off the walls of a space and gives us cues to the size of that space. If you have ever been in a very large room, think church, stadium etc; and heard your voice echo around it, this is reverb.

Gives sound a “fuzzy”, “growling”, or “gritty” tone, think electric guitar.
