    Safely removing basslines/synthlines from loops?


    cool I'm really good when it comes to manual wave editing and enveloping, and usually good at manual noise removal, too.

    I often find some complex loops and sounds on freesound, and, just for fun, try to dissect them for my own purposes, such as using in songs. I just like to challenge myself with stuff like that. grin

    Eitherhow... There's one thing I run into very often in these cases: two or three sounds stacked on top of eachother. In the case of basslines, it's fairly easy to recreate the bass sound using the fragments right after the drum beat, to get the general shape of the bass right....

    Sorry! Getting off topic again :evil:

    I'll just get right to the question here:

    Are there any LADSPA or Nyquist Plug-Ins for Audacity that can "smooth" a sound? As in rounding out the wave?

    It doesn't need to be A LADSPA or Nyquist, it's just that nothing else works on audacity, and I like audacity best so yeah.

    Thanks,
    - Mike

    Yes, Sony Sound Forge can do that but this is an Software($$$) :?

    I suppose I can still do it manually. Doesn't really make too much of a difference.

    Thanks for the help, though smile

    EDIT: Don't you think maybe I could do this with Equalization, LP filter or FFT filter :?:

    Yes, but if you show me an picture of an signal, I will give you what to do exactly...

    but I realise that on Sony Sound Forge the Smooth/Enhance FX is an low-pass normalized filter for Smoothing and an high-pass normalized filter for Enhance weirdhock: ...

    So I think that use filters is an good solution cool ...

    grin Yup, worked out pretty good.

    Just used a Low-pass on it, smoothed out fairly well. Good enough for my purposes at least. I'll have to add that to my handy dandy notepad. (no seriously, I have a notepad document with all my techniques written down)
