Pick Thud from Gtr Track

I have a elec gtr part that has some really heavy thud from te pick.
In most places I can live with it but in others it is really distracting.
I can't seem to EQ it out.  Envelope Shaper (native in Cubase) works OK but I don't quite
like that approach.  Haven't tried compression yet.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Maybe post a clip?

It sounds like you've tried the things I'd try, maybe a multiband compressor, if it's a low frequency thump?

I tried putting the file in Wavelab Spectrum Edit
that didn't work either.  Albeit I'm not that good with Spectrum Edit.
The Thud appears acroos a wide frequency range and a lot of Strength in the
250 to 1000 range the narrowest EQ kills the Gtr sound.
I'll upload a portion of the file.
Thanks

Yeah, I hear what you're talking about!

I might try running it through an amp sim, and see what happens. Even if you want a clean tone, maybe an amp sim will take that attack down a bit. A distorted tone would proabably mask it better, but might not work for the song.

A transient designer plug like you tried would be my second approach, but you'd really have to play with it, I think.

Re-recording the track is not possible? Maybe without the delay?

Hmmm....didn't think of Amp Sim.  Good idea I'll try it.
I had planned on running it through on anyway but genrally like to clean up the parts
first.
Thanks

Or you might try to re-amp it.

Hi, might work with transient designer.
De esser or multi band comp

A really fast limiter set to only reduce those pick sounds, and nothing else.
Like a Waves L1 or like that.

Cheers
