Not really no, that would involve a long and tasking process of seperating out all the frequencies which beleive me is more hassle than its worth.

May i suggest instead guitar pro/powertab, solo the bass through that, its really your only realistic option.

Thats what I do. If you can get a really decent GuitarPro(with drums and everything) you can use it as a backing track as well.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

A rapper friend of mine uses Guitarpro for his backing tracks, surely real musicians can do it too!

Boost 31-125hz on the Graphic EQ then cut everything else. of your media player. Helps if you wanna hear it.

Unless you have the masters for the track, or an unmixed set for it, no, you can't.

You can't separate the bass from a track, but you can boost it like richrawr said

guitar pro is basically a fancy tab, where you get the regular tab notation, as well as a sound file with the actual tab being played for you to play along with.... You need to buy guitar pro to play these files, The demo is free, and it lasts 60 days i think, and the full version is about 50 dollars(i think) You could try torrenting it, but that can be a bit dodgy.

Failing that, boost the bass on your media player EQ and cut the highs, that will make it a little bit easier

Actually, as long as you are not particularly bothered by the illegality of the act, there are many reliable torrents for GuitarPro 5 (version 5.2). In fact, it is a very popular torrent and there should be quite a few seeds.

Guitar pro is easily worth $30. The problem is that they want to charge $50 for it. It's great for learning bass riffs, because you can lower the volume of any given track...which lets you reduce the guitar, but still hear it.

Unless it's some kind of Aebersold track where you can pan out all of the instruments, then no, you would need the masters. Like everyone else says, *ahem* "buying" Guitar Pro is your best bet. You can get a tab for each instrument that can be played by itself so essentially you're getting the track by itself.

Personally, my favorite approach is to listen to the chords and make my own damn basslines for the tune using my friend Music Theory, unless it's a particularly critical and recognizable bassline to be played, in which case you wouldn't have any trouble hearing it anyway.
