Hey everyone, my name is Ross. I'm a huge fan of incubus, and I really want to hear the individual tracks on this album called SCIENCE. If I could find out how, then I'd love to hear anything I listen to like that!
I'm guessing (and hoping!) a lot of you are really proficient with recording technology, so if someone could please help me, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Aug 04, 2004 07:01 pm you mean isolate the individual tracks? impossible!
Aug 04, 2004 08:23 pm so theres no way i could hear just the guitar part, or vocal part?
Aug 04, 2004 08:31 pm no, not after it's mixed. What you can do is play with frequencies on an EQ and, for example, lower the low frequencies to get the bass out and maybe the really high frequencies to get the high stuff out, and it would leave most of the mids...You cannot separate each instrument, but you can isolate the frequency ranges in which an instrument is most prominent.
Aug 04, 2004 08:51 pm how do i isolate the frequency ranges?
Aug 04, 2004 09:02 pm just like I said, turning down the other frequencies...and leaving the freqeuncy range(s) you want to hear alone.
Aug 04, 2004 09:45 pm what kind of software will allow me to do this?
and thank you very much!
Aug 04, 2004 09:53 pm any wave editor...Audacity is free at audacity.sourceforge.net and the bundled Equalizer effect that comes with it could do the job nicely.
But again, I have to emphasize that it will not separate instruments...it will not give you the results you were originally seeking.
