    hey everyone,

    is there a way to take a sample (bass, drums, piano melody) and extract the bass line..? ive been trying to fiddle around with low pass filters on the eq, and im getting pretty close to removing the excess (the melody, etc), but it seems that the bass is losing some of its flavor. any help and suggestions would be great. thanks.

    If I understand your question, there is no way of "extracting" the bass out of a song/sample without some serious damage to its overall quality. If its already mixed down to stereo all you can do is grab a general area of low frequency and get an idea of what the bassline is with a lot, say, let's call it leakage...and a bad sounding bass. But hey, if it works for what youre trying to do with it, then by all means... :)

    yeah i kept playing with it and kind of figured that out. i got it sounding ALRIGHT, to the point where it was usable in my application. thanks a lot for the reply!
