    You might be successful in having the recording go through a mixer and then the channels, or even the frequency paths, can be isolated/enhanced to bring out the bass track (through playbacks) to be dominate.

    One can get software programs for a PC and you can run the audio through the input/or audio interface to then do much the same as a mixer. Some software claim that they can do good separations but yet to find one other than voice/singing audio isolation tool as being complete.

    1. Import into sound editor like Audacity.

    2. Split channels.

    3. Invert phase (polarity) of R channel.

    4. Pan both channels to centre and sum together.

    5. Invert polarity of the resulting signal.

    6. Sum together with the original L channel.

    7. Put a fat 4th-order (24 dB/octave) low-pass filter around 150 Hz.

    8. ?????

    9. Profit!!

    It takes about $5000 worth of equipmen to extract something from a recorded piece and it's tricky to do. If you wnat a MUSIC MINUS track then BUY IT already as a music minus recording.

    You could use a crossover on the output, then feed it back into another amp and record it.

    Or you could use a good graphic equaliser.
