What’s the best way to remove a bass track from a song so I can play along to it? There are threads in the search, but it seems like this is something that’s had some AI advances and changed pretty quickly.
For bonus points is there anything that lets me listen to the bass that I removed by itself? I can pick up at least some melodies by ear, but bass tracks are a lot more jumbled in the mix and hard to pick out.
Yep Moises, and you can mute other instrument and only play bass track, but for best result just lower other tracks down very low and push the bass up, you can slow it down without changing pitch as well as A-B the tricky sections.
The thing that’s wrong with it is a residual feeling from HS orchestra that any piece with more than 4 sharps/flats in the key signature was written at least halfway to fuck with the instrumentalists. Or by a brass player who won’t transpose which is basically the same thing.
Lalalai is great (as mentioned earlier I have pushed it quite a bit on the channel). However, if you want the best splitter on the market I would recommend RipX. I’ve been using it for the past few months and it is brilliant.
All stem splitters are going to be imperfect. The bass will sound like the speakers are covered in treacle when the mix is congested. But, RipX is the best I’ve tried.
And as a bonus, every note is displayed at the correct pitch next to a piano graphic so you can actually just click on a note to find the pitch. There’s a bunch of other awesome features too but it is relatively expensive.
@markjsmith - I have tested both Lalalai and Moishes and found seperation with Moishes much better - but both are far from perfect, unfortunately.
I am looking at RipX too and have tested one track that came out comparable to Moishes.
The MIDI generation feature was really bad though, absolutely unusable, even for simple (but great) tracks, like Meshell Ndegeocello - Make Me Wanna Holler
Do you know the difference between RipX standard and pro in trems of relevance to bass players?
I mainly use Splitter by Bandlab. It’s free! You can isolate and adjust the volume of vocals/instrument. You can also change the song key. I use for church practice and also finding song key for our singers.
I’m looking for a software or app that is like Moises and the other suggestions in this thread but with chords / tabs to go with it and has a database of songs I can tap into rather than having to upload previously acquired mp3 files. Basically I’m looking for Ultimate Guitar Tabs (which I own and use) but with vocals included. I want to play along with songs that actually have the vocals and teach me the song as I go. Any suggestions?
