I didn't know what to call this thread. There's a beautiful whistle piece played by Michael McGoldrick called The Stream on a CD called Celtic Melt. You can find it on iTunes I think. Anyway, I would like to work out the whistle tune but it is very subdued within the music and hard to distinguish the individual notes at least to begin with. Is there any way using software I can bring the whistle part out to hear it better? I have the original CD.

Sorry, don't know of anything. Have you tried Googling to see if anyone else has already figured it out?

I'm getting somewhere. I posted the same question on C&F and this is the thread.http://forums.chiffandfipple.com/viewto ... 7#p1101777 If I can work it out without involving Audacity so much the better. Most tracks are easy enough the transcribe without singling out the whistle part from the middle of the mix. One day I should learn Audacity but it doesn't seem very easy.

I don't think you can 'split' the tracks. You can eliminate frequencies outside the range of the whistle, but not simply isolate the whistle track. This we be a inverse of a 'vocal eliminator' for karaoke.

Audacity isn't so bad. And the price is definitely right. Additionally the new version supports vst plugins which give you a wide range of free add-ons like reverbs, delays, exciters, etc.

Like I say I didn't know what to call the thread. But you are right.
