Anytune has a number of tools to help you focus on (or ignore) parts of the music including ReFrame, FineTouch EQ, balance and pan and even pitching up the song to find the bass line.
You can use ReFrame to mute or solo a specific frequency range in a specific position on the sound stage. ReFrame allows you to "crop" sound. You can include or exclude the frequencies inside or outside the window. The vertical range represents the frequencies and the horizontal range represents the position on-stage.
See ReFrame - instrument and vocal isolation.
This could help to focus or ignore on an instrument when learning or practicing along.
FineTouch EQ (Parametric Equalizer)
You can use the FineTouchEQ to suppress and enhance specific frequencies and PAN capabilities to focus on an instrument that is on one side of the stage.
The Isolate EQ presets attempt to boost the frequencies used by a specific instrument and suppress the others. However, all songs are different and many instruments share many of the same frequencies. Specific instruments can be difficult to isolate with EQ settings because they have very wide dynamic range.
See this image of the frequency spectrum, instrument ranges and EQ tips. from @BandPage.
EQing is an art. The EQ presets will provide a place to start. You can then adjust the ranges for the best results for your song. Anytune saves the EQ settings for each song. If you get a setting that works for you, you can save it as a user preset and use it on more than one song.
Tap the EQ List button and then plus (+) at the button right to save your own EQ Presets.

Pitch it Up
See our Baseline Isolation Tutorial to see how you can pitch up and EQ to isolate the baseline.
ReFrame and the FineTouch EQ (available in Anytune Pro+ or Anytune with Studio Pack In-App purchase).
Balance and Pan
You may also be able to focus on an instrument using Balance and Pan
The Pan/Balance has three modes: Balance, Balance (Mono) and Pan.
- Balance - Decrease the audio output to one channel.
- Balance (Mono) - Make both output channels include the audio from both incoming channels, and allow Balance.
- Pan - Move the sound from one channel to both speakers.
You may find the Pan useful because you can listen to the Left channel in both ears.
- Tap the Mode button (far right of the Play Button). Anytune has several modes that change the display and controls.
- Choose LiveMix Mode
The top row of the new controls is for Input like a Microphone. The second row is for the music.
- Choose and Pan and then adjust the slider.
Tap and hold the Pan button to bring up the Music Pan Mode Menu and choose Pan or Balance.
The LiveMix controls can be added to the PlayBack view with the toggle button:
