    yes vocals can be separated from a song

    the question has been asked many times, and there is a way to separate vocals form a song, the only problem in doing so is that you might lose some of the instumental. The process does not produce two seperate tracks but "silences out" the vocals. I don't have the time right now to explain it all, (i'm in the middle of a lecture), but it involves using programs such as x-noise, x-click, x-hum, and other such noise eliminating programs in a combination to only allow certain frequecies to pass through, note: this process is only sucessful 50% of the time and takes hours of tweaking but if done correctly will only allow bass and instument notes to play through the song. If done correctly the pitch of the singer will be recognized and silenced and only the instrumental will pass through. Ill post a picture some other time, gotta go, experiment and good luck!

    it depends on the song, rap songs and pop songs require a very much different process

    BY THE WAY, you CAN do the same (different settings) process to remove the instrumental and allow (again, depends on the song %50 chance) only vocals to pass through. Again im in a rush and will post some screenshots of this sometime later. Good luck to everyone and hope that this will work for you!

    I've done it this way with success most of the time.

    1. Create 2 mono tracks form the the stereo track.
    2. Set each mono track to a track.
    3. invert the phase of one track, while the second track adjust the pan left or right.

    I get better results when I run CD player through my mixer which has a phase invert switch.

    If the song is heavy on effects (delay, reverb) you'll get much of the artifacts from it.

    since main vocal tracks are generally panned in the center... but inverting the phase of each stereo side 180 degrees you can cancell out the center of the stereo spectrum... thereby removing the vocals entirely.


    This was a tip in the newest computer music magainze given my the creators of traktion.

    the only problem I see with this is that while it is true that main vocals are panned center.... so are bass tracks, and the kick drum in most music. this will get rid of everything in the center : /

    analog x makes a freeware plugin that dose this and while most of the time u lose the bass , kick and snare i can put the kick back with limited results by making a copy of the track and filtering just under the vocal freq and mixing it back in with the processed track most of the time i don't think it's worth it tho.
    You want to sound like who????

    anyone else have a feeling of deja v?

    • someone asks how to remove vocals/remove beats from a song
    • people say it's impossible
    • someone links to urbanspirit's vocal removing via recycle bin thread
    • carnage has a seizure
    • someone starts the phase-inverting thread

    rinse & repeat.
