Vocal Remover Software

I do remember seeing something about software that removes vocal tracks from an orginal cd recording but couldn't find it after searching. Anybody use this or have any suggestions? I know Alesis also makes a couple of hardware products as well.

i worked in a store that sold the alesis product.

i was VERY doubtful that it could work.

i tried it.

it worked at about 85% of complete removal.

as for what you asked about.... i have no idea.

If you do not need it stereo....... Just take the left channel and flip it out of phase and listen back mono. The thing that is really hard about this is the efects on the vocals. If there is alot of reverb forget about it. You will always hear vocals left in the reverb.

thats true when youre invert only one side of a stereo file...you can get it cleaner if you have the main version, and either the instrumental or accapella depending on what you need. The easiest way to get these is to buy the vinyl.

You also have to make sure you mix the two perfectly at the same time, for this reason I find it easier to use the instrumental because i can line up the first hit down to the sample...then invert the instrumental..and when you mix them you end up with the accapella...

Elevayta has a plugin for this, if I remember right.
Anyway it works only if the information to be removed is dead center.

My Recordings/Credits

You can do a respectable, if there is such a term for this, with the Waves S1 and an EQ. It always sounds a bit wierd....but if you work it it will reach semi adequate.

Here are instructions for doing this manually in any two-track Wave editor:
