My particular interest is in isolating the guitar parts in instrumental recordings (e.g. guitar with orchestra or with a band) for purposes of picking up subtle clues that help me determine the exact notes that are being played as well as the position on the fingerboard. Generally, the guitar recordings I transcribe are clean with little effects other than a small amount of delay or reverb. They may be either acoustic (classical) or electric (typically without distortion).
I’m wondering if it is possible to create a unique layer or track for the guitar by using the AI features in Pro 7 or by manually selecting the guitar part in the spectrum using the available selection tools?
It seems like it would be easy enough to select the fundamental frequency of the guitar part in a song using the manual selection tools, but is there a way to simultaneously select the associated harmonics that may be overlapping with other instruments in the mix?
Or is there a way to use reverse the unmix process (for example, to teach Pro 7 to recognize the components of the specific instrument)?
To be clear, I have not yet tested the product and have not yet purchased it. I currently use Audacity to slow the tempo of a song without changing the pitch. I also have used the spectral display to look at the progression of notes in a run or slides, etc. This has been very useful. But I’m wondering if I might be able to use the Pro 7 functionality to go to a new level?
