    Hi Guys & Gals,
    I'm currently using prerecorded backing tracks and need to pitch shift them to the approptiate key for me....for most this works fine, but the odd song requires a big change which can make the bass warbble because it is to low?? Does anybody have any suggestions on how to fix this using protools? Should I try and EQ it out? or alter the way I do it with pitch shift?

    I would appriecetate any help on this

    First suggestion that comes to me is to create a crossover and deal with the bass separately (use 2 pitch shifts).
    BUT...you'll still need to bring the bass up the same amount, which doesn't fix the problem.

    Good luck.

    Probably too expensive for you, but Serato Pitch'N'Time does a fantastic job of pitch shifting and time compression/expansion.

    Hey there. It may be too drastic and its pretty exspensive but I've heard that you can use Melodyne on bass and just go in and fix the specifics.
