What is DeComposer?
DeComposer is an advanced filtering program that allows you to filter out a single instrument or sections of instruments from any digital audio file. Just imagine that you had a digital audio file (herein referred to as a wav file) of a great guitar solo and you wanted to hear yourself playing that solo instead of the recorded artist. Just set up the DeComposer note filter to take out the guitar from the mix and its gone. Now you can play the solo yourself, using all of the other original band members as your own personal backing band.
Exclude any range of notes.
Boost or cut the volume of any frequency range
Create Low-Pass, High-Pass, Band-Pass and Band-Reject filters.

For years, people have been spending large amounts of money on pre-recorded music that removed the main instrument from the mix. Unfortunately, there are only a limited amount of recordings available and what recordings are available are not done with the original musicians. So you really can't get the song just as you had heard it on the original recording. Also, many people are disappointed when they finally get a recording without the main instrument. It is much harder than they thought to sync up their own playing with the rest of the band. However, with DeComposer's Note Filter, you can set the Filter Sensitivity level so that you can leave a trace amount of the original instrument in the mix: enough to act as an audible cue!
And none of this is much help to the transcriber who has to accurately notate each note being played, not just the lead instrument.
What is really needed is a tool that decomposes the music. That is, a tool that can isolate all of the separate instruments from the mix. A tool that can let you listen to either the selected instrument by itself or the entire music without the instrument of choice.
DeComposer solves all of these problems. Just convert your favorite recordings to a wav file using the software that came with your computer. Then, run the wav file through DeComposer. Using the Note Filter, you can filter out any range of notes. You can also toggle the filter and only listen to a select range of notes. Use the Frequency Filter to create your own LowPass, HighPass, BandPass, BandStop and Notch Filters. You can easily boost or cut the volume of any frequency range. Finally, use the Noise Filter to remove grounding hums and other noise from your recordings. Check out all of the great features below.
CD Looper Pro and DeComposer
CD Looper Pro is the perfect companion program to DeComposer. By using the two programs together, you can very easily create your own wav files of your favorite music, remove the instrument from the mix that you want to play and then set up your computer to record an unlimited amount of takes. It is like creating your own personal backing band that never takes a break! Just follow these 4 easy steps:
Depending on the source of the music, use either CD Looper (for CDs) or NoteGrabber (to record from cassettes, etc.) and record the musical passage that you want to play.
Process the new wav file with DeComposer and remove the instrument.
Load the newly created file into NoteGrabber.
Start OverDubber. Set the number of takes you want to make (up to 999), type in a default file name and press the Record button.. Set the number of takes you want to make (up to 999), type in a default file name and press the Record button.
Thatís all there is to it. You have just created the perfect accompaniment tracks for your own playing. And each take that you did is saved as a separate wav file so that you can go back and listen to those truly inspired licks that you just created!

Important Notes about DeComposer:
It is virtually impossible to filter out 100% of a complete instrument, because the frequencies of instruments overlap. For example the top range of a bass guitar would overlap the bottom range of a lead guitar. No program can do what only your ear can do. For example: We have some users who are upset because they have a piece of music that has two leads playing (one is a percussive kind of lead and the other is a solo lead). The user wanted to filter out the solo lead and quickly found out that the percussive lead was filtered out. Well..........OF COURSE THIS WILL HAPPEN. The program filtered out the lead, and no program on the face of this earth knows how to distinguish between a percussive lead and a solo lead.
This is how the program works: The program analyzes the common frequency bands of common instruments. Most instruments fall within a frequency range and can be easily filtered out. Don't get us wrong, the program works miracles, but it is not perfect. This is why we even gave you the option to put in your own frequency range in order to be more precise in your filtering.
The purpose of this software is to filter out the instrument so you can practice the lead part with the music. Or to isolate instruments to really hear what the instrument is doing.
For $39.99 there is nothing else on the market that does what DeComposer does.
