[ddots-l] Re: extracting vocals

Hi Omar
Not sure if vinyl would be any better. It sounds like nothing will be perfect.

  I've just been searching the net for a way to do this, and I guess there's no 
genuine way of getting perfect acapella using any kind of software. They're 
saying that you can get the acapella to songs if you get them on vinyl.

    Hi Omar
    I've just checked and there is an option in Audition the centre channel 
extract and one of the presets is accapella (apologies for the spelling). It's 
as good as the vocal remove in that it certainly focuses on the voice but there 
is still a trace of the background music. It's good but perhaps not good enough.
    Regards.

      Gordon,

      Will the software you mentioned work for waht i'm trying to do? I just 
want vocals and not the music.

        Hi Gene
        Apologies if this is the case. I should have read things more clearly.

          I thought Omar wanted exactly the opposite of what you  are 
suggesting!!!
          He doesn't want vocals removed from a track to make it a karaoke 
track, he wants to extract the vocals and disregard the music!!!

            Hi Omar
            There are one or two programs which purport to help extract 
vocals.There is Vocal Remover which can be googled - it has accessible menus 
but does need a bit of Jaws censoring if you wish to follow their instructions 
for vocal remove. Sighted help would be advisable the first couple of times til 
you get used to the layout.
            It's fairly good but if there's echo on the vocal track you may be 
left with some trace.
            I also Use Adobe Audition 1.5 - this has a vocal remove option. 
It's more effective I think in some of the songs I've tried, but it still 
leaves a trace in some cases.What can be helpful here is to purchase an 
instrumental version of the song and lower the main instrument - this can work 
well. 
            I'm maybe telling you what you know already but Itunes has a large 
range of Karaoke songs, many of which are of excellent quality. Napster has 
too, but not some many. I usually type in the Istore search karaoke, and the 
name of the song or the artist - often I'm surprised.
            Hope this helps and is not giving more than you wish.

              Hello,

              I'm interested in doing remixes of coversongs, but my question 
is: do we have access to any kind of software that will allow us to extract 
only the vocals out of a song, so that we get the accapella version of it?

              Thanks.
