So here's the setup: I am working with a piece of cello music that layers bowed cello with plucked cello (filling the role of percussion). The director is asking whether I can independently control amplitude on the plucked and bowed cello that is laid in together. My answer was a very tentative "I'll see what I can do."
My current thoughts have been to either use an RTA (I have SIA SmaartLive and a couple plugs) to locate the fundamental and then just multiply for the overtones and notch eq them in the box. I have also considered just pulling out an outboard parametric and try to notch out or gain the fundamental of either the bowed or plucked, but probably the plucked...plucked seems to have less frequency spread.
Any thoughts? Are there any other strategies not relating to EQ, or do you think I am going about this backwards?
