Removing Instrumentals

Postby Ricky Denzel » 23 Oct 2014 17:02

Can someone please remove instruments from a song? This is the song I need help with removing instrumentals.

I looked at videos and I tried to do it, but I can't do it.

This was answered in the discussion thread.

Mr. Bigglesworth wrote: Lemme tell you about removing instruments. It's complicated and requires very CPU intensive, very complex and very expensive programs to do. These programs are what we in the area of audio call "fucking witchcraft" and trust me Audacity is none of these things.

The programs that CAN remove instruments though are so ridiculously effective at it that if you buy them you can actually turn them into your job because they're witchcraft and people are willing to pay for a slice of your sweet, delicious witchcraft for their film projects.


If someone volunteers that's great but I really seriously doubt this is anyone's forte or that it would be a free service.

Can I just clarify that I thought he meant removing specific instruments?

Try track down an instrumental version of the song you're wanting to extract vocals from, put it under the vocal mix and phase invert one of them. Might not be fantastic but it's all that can be done aside from getting an official stem

Well there could be a couple problems, one is that you might not have the 2 tracks prefectly in line with eachother, another is that there were some stereo elements that were already phasing and as a result pretty much refused to go away or they could have been a little sneaky and varied the tempo of the vocal mix by about 0.5 bpm +/- over every 4 bars, which is a pretty effective way of making it hard to rip stems. Fact of the matter is, it's not easy to rip clean vocals
