    hey, i was wondering if it is possible to isolate a bass line from a song with a program like winamp, using for instance it's graphic equalizer. anyways, is it possible, and if so, what settings does everyone use to accomplish such a task? cheers

    You can't really "isolate" it, persay, but you can indeed use the EQ to find the bassline a lot easier, and to bring it to the forefront. I find the "full bass and treble" EQ preset works pretty well for bringing out a bassline and cutting the sonic fat, as it were. There's still all those annoying drums and guitars and vocals, but the bass is a lot easier to hear.
  3. Right. In order to actually "isolate" the bass track you would need a music editor/recording software such as Protools or something similar.

    Get some good quality computer speakers w/ a subwoofer.

    I have Creative Labs' Inspire T2900 which I got for about $50. Very good value, not as clear and compact as my roommates JBL Creature IIs, but comparable.
