I'm looking for a way to enhance the vocal percussion (i.e., beatboxing) of some acapella recordings--this is the one I'm working on at the moment. I realize I'm not going to be able to isolate it entirely, but anything I could do to make it sound more prominent will be helpful. It's only for my own learning (beatboxing, not sound engineering) so it doesn't have to be perfect. I am a complete novice with regards to sound design. I have GarageBand, but I'd be willing to purchase something else if it did the job and were reasonably priced.
I had a go with a transient shaper & multi-band compressor, but tbh the track is already finished, mastered, finalised & compressed for market; it doesn't leave you a lot of space to play with.
I pushed the transients 18 dB & all I got was... transients.
There's too much 'track' to really be able to isolate it.
