    I use rhapsody for all my music needs its only $9 a month for all the music I want and I can put on my mp3 to take in the car or whatever, anyways my question is, whats the best way turn down the treble and vocals, to bring out the bass, is there a device or a download,? some sort of E.Q
     
  2. Checkout "vocal removal" software - or with any good DAW you can EQ it to sound however you want. I use Mixcraft Pro 6 and it comes voice removing.
     
  3. Using EQ is the easiest, not-so-good way. However, when you boost low EQ to bring out the bass, you also bring out any kick drum that might be there. There are a few computer programs that attempt to isolate parts within recordings. But, frankly, none of them works very well. It's very difficult to isolate things once they have been mixed.

    Run it through a mid/side encoder and mute the sides signal.

    That will leave (generally) the drums, bass and lead vocals. Guitars and effects should largely fall away.
