    is there a program for your computer that takes out all the music on mp3's and just plays the bass part?

    yep. I had a program like it but it was for MIDI. It seperated it into lots of pieces, but for normal mp3 format i wouldn't have a clue. It should be there on an audio editing piece of software like cubase VST

    There is no program that can do this.

    Heh, if you could change it to midi then you'd have already done it.

    there is no way to convert audio into midi format.

    well, there have been attempts, but ultimately they have failed.

    MIDI is a data format, it does not play audio, it plays programmed 'events' that are translated into audio by software.

    |I am sure there must be a program that does this. You can convert a song to midi, and then you can choose what tracks on it you want, but that will only be in midi format.

    Nope, there have been attempts as I mentioned before, but there is too much background noise in audio files for a midi decoder to get a clear line, you'd end up with lots of overtones and stuff.

    Like, take a tuner, and put it up to a speaker, and then try and learn a line by the notes the tuner calls out while the music is playing, that'd be what it's like for the computer to do it.

    Ok, there might be a (expensive) solution: convert the MP3-song into WAV. Read the WAV-file into a MATLAB-variable (Mathworks) and play around with the (expensive) Signal Processing Toolbox. An advanced band-pass digital filter may work for your song. ;)

    Seriously, there is no easy way to get rid of "unwanted" music-information in a recording. Sorry!

    hey, the easier way, would just be to cut out hte HIs and raise the LOWs on your EQ, it won't really do THAT much, but it might be all you need to pick out the bass part a little easier
