I agree with you Guitar Sage. It is a good software. Julie, you can find some comparisons of good music tools. Here is a link to a comparison for a good overview of some the top audio slow down products. http://ratedbyyou.net/music-slow-down-software.html
Answering my own question because I found an awesome tool : Riffstation (saddly, not cheap). It can slow down the music (and does it much better than Reaper), you isolate frequencies and you can isolate parts of the stereo field ! Usually the guitars are panned left / right and bass, drums & vocals are on the center of the stereo field. Although the ...
I had the same issue with a guitar and those changes fixed it, it might also work for bass : Adjust the action : with a lower action, you need less "bending" on the string when fretting. It helped a bit but can be annoying if you like your current action. Change the strings gauge : this worked really well with my issue.

However, I've been transcribing music for many years and I've come to the conclusion that in most cases you just need to be able to select the difficult bit and be able to loop it ...
Warwick specifically used to specify that tapered strings were required for their basses (especially on the B). Some will note that tapered strings can also help with intonation. Doing research for tapered strings showed that DR Longnecks (tapered) strings actually have intonation issues so I suggest not picking those up to try and fix your current issue. ...
If your open string is in tune but your higher frets are out of tune it is the string length that is the problem. If your bridge adjustment has moved to its full travel and intonation is still out, you should get a quick look at your truss rod adjustment, in case your neck is really out of whack, but aside from that you don't have many options. Have you ...
