Someone has asked me to edit the length of a song for them. This is not a problem, but throughout the song there is a high-pitched tone or "whistle" at, I am guessing, around 10KHz.

Is there an easy way to find the frequency of this tone and filter it out?

Easy - yes. Cheap, no -- not for a good job. Most free software seems to be worth its cost.

So, what is the "not cheap" solution, and how "not cheap" is it?

You could always contact the owner of the original recording and ask for the separate track recordings Smile

(actually I have done this...being a remixer)

Found this method on the internet, hope it can help you. It uses the freeware Audacity.

Sound forge from Sony is a pretty good program to use. The last time I bought it I payed $75. It can take out most of the whistle by using the filters that are available. It's pretty user friendly if you have some basic knowledge of audio terminology. It's usually available at any computer store by the video editing stuff or can be purchased online from Sony. I consider it a good tool to have.

Thanks for the Audacity information. I will try it later today, hopefully.

Audacity has anything you need to edit tracks: cut, normalisation, effects, time stretch, format conversion to MP3 (downloading free LAME encoder) and is very intuitive.

I use Nuendo everyday for professional work (multitracking, audio-video syncronisation, composing, ...) but sometimes rely on audadity for fast recording and editing works.

One of the works I perform very often is to slow songs for a friend who is dance teacher. People want commercial themes slowed down to dance in their weddings and with Audacity it's only a few seconds.

Try it, it will serve you very well and... it's free.

Of course, if you only need to gess the frequency of the tone it's as simple as put an VST spectrograph ( several free ones at http://www.kvraudio.com/ ) and play your audio throught it. You then look for the peak and read the frequency.
