Help Separating Two Sounds ~ this IS a Tough One
I have attached a recording (done in AUM). There are 2 sounds in this recording that I'm trying to separate in AUM to process them differently. Use different fx plugins on each of the 2 different sounds. The recording was made with a violin with octave strings, so it sounds more like a cello..... however (there's always that however)
the first sound - is very short and 'sticky' bass notes. Most of the time, I'm playing G, G#, A, A. You'll easily be able to hear this in the recording. A few times I might have played C, B, Bb, A, A. The 'bass part' here, I "believe" or hope is pretty distinguishable. I am playing these notes on the 2 lowest pitched strings (my violin has 4 strings)
the second sound - (my problem child) - is a percussive sound. What I am doing here is called "chopping". I am using the very bottom of the bow and hitting the strings with a very, very short bow stroke, that is percussive in nature. I am also using my left hand to mute or dampen the strings - to keep the sound percussive and not let any ringing or sustained notes happen which would make it not 'percussive'. Here, I am hitting the 2 highest pitched strings, but there's no, or very, very little note resonance, so you it's a little tough to tell that I'm playing the top two strings.
I go back and forth between them. The bass part and the chopping part.
I want to separate the bass notes (the first sound) from the chopping sound. I'm not certain at all how to do it. I thought I'd try EQ.... but you can see the 2 screen snapshots below in FabFilter - I don't see how I can separate them by EQ. I also thought.... perhaps.... maybe by time (where in the four beats of each measure) the bass and chopping happen..... but it's perfectly consistent. The bass notes definitely have more resonance, but I don't think there's something that can discern that.
Any ideas on how to separate the bass and chopping?
