Anyone know a way to isolate (or at least emphasize) the Bass part in an audio file? Adjusting the EQ doesn't seem to help much.

I use Adobe Audition and am familiar with plug-ins, etc.

THANKS !!!

EQing is gonna be your best bet.
Is this a pro track or from something else?

Tascam Bass Trainer. I've had the BT-I for quite some time. Don't know how it measures up to the II. Doubles dandily as a plug-in headphone amp and a regular CD player.

You'll have to burn the stuff from your computer, though.

Turn it up and then go into the next room.
The bass will go through the walls and the rest won't.

Or put it in your car (which of course has subwoofer bass tubes), crank it up and drive around the neighborhood. You may not be able to isolate the bass part, but that's all your neighbors will hear.

Equalize or boost unless you have all of the tracks separately.

Yeah, but won't he have trouble seperating out the kick drum from the bass parts?

They have an MP3 version now frown Wish I'd have got that one instead of the CD version, because like Frank says, you have to burn cd's.
