[music-dsp] matching two waveforms for subtraction

thanks for writing. is cross-correlation the only, or just the preferred,
method for doing this? and do you have any reference to an implementation?
all i can find are complex equations; my intention is to use the technique
in GNU octave (akin to matlab).
as long as the BPM is constant, even with some error introduced by human
playing, i imagine that results would be passable. as far as the high
frequencies you mention, since they will never be present in speech, i can
just roll response off after 5 or 10 khz to eliminate hihats and such,
