Not sure if this is possible but I got an old studio recording I done a few years ago and there's a small guitar part (2 measures) thats wrong and driving me nuts.... I'd love to be able to either erase it totally or even just bring down the volume on that one part.....unfor don't have the original this was just one of the takes from the session lost the original and I need it for an upcoming project. I'm using Audition CS6 in Win7 Ultimate 32Bbit
Appreciate any help
There are a couple of things you can try, and you don't need the CC version to try them. Your best bet for at least reducing one part over a short period is to identify it, and its harmonics, in the Frequency Analysis window and simply paint them out with the spot brush. Also, if the part is panned specifically to one place in the stereo, you can use the center channel extractor to reduce it, if you steer the extraction point to where the sound is - it doesn't just work in the centre!
No joy I'm afraid I seem to be rubbing out other instruments as well maybe its just to deep in the mix to reach and its very hard to identify .....not to worry maybe its just me new at all this editing lark
Appreciate the feedback anyway guys
At least you can console yourself that you wouldn't get at it with the sound removal tool either then - you need to be able to identify it in a similar way to use it. And it's not exactly ideal for doing the job; it's meant to be able to remove other instances of a cleanly identified sound, and this doesn't sound as though it's anything like that.
Well in reality I guess its a fairly loud identifiable segmnet ok its just actually pinpointing it for editing is my prob I think can identify it more in the Spectral Pitch as opposed to the Spectral Frequency but I suppose I'll need to do a bit more research into editing ....hate giving up on things but now I know its prob possible to achieve I'll hang in there for a bit

Er, they are the same thing! It's the screen under the waveform you need to be looking at, and you can expand the display vertically so that it's displaying just the bits you need, to make it easier. You have to bear in mind that the guitar notes won't just have fundamental frequencies, but a load of harmonics too, and to get rid of all of them, you have to identify at least all of the strongest ones - and that whole process isn't that easy to do. In fact, it can be very time-consuming, even if you get good at it.
Oh right of course just trying to get used to all the new terms having come from Sonar ......what I really meant was the waveform is much easier to view than the spectral view even though its the same thing even when expanded its very hard to see anything . Anyway it seems to be a fairly difficult and time consuming exercise to be attempting so soon. Not to worry I'll manage it as it is no big deal.
Thanks again for help and advice.
