anyone know how this was done? you can hear the delay trails and everything. definitely something going on here that is much more than the standard tricks Ive heard such as flipping the phase and combining and simple eq

lots of auto tune, lots of compression, PROBABLY some type of "Exciter" on there also. does not sound special to me.

IMHO, rather UNspecial. I'm sick of hearing people that CAN'T actually hit notes, make music because they auto tune it. Remember, I qualified that with: "IMHO" it's not truth, it is my personal feeling and opinion.

actually you misunderstood me. I wasnt talking about the vocal production itself, I was wondering how they separated the vocal track from the original song?

this is the original part http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...uNJLlq8eQ#t=89 starts at 1:30

you can hear there are a couple musical elements on top of the vocal part, yet this acapella clip I found online is very clean. I actually keep hearing acapella tracks like this one (nearly perfect yet not a real soloed out acapella from the original session) and that is what prompted my question. has there has been some breakthrough in the last few years for analyzing a song and being able to solo certain elements that I do not know about?

here is another example https://soundcloud.com/bestacapellas...safe-and-sound
very clean sounding, but there is no official acapella for either of these songs so they had to be made by these guys that are trying to sell them. the question is how did they make them?

They didn't. They acquired the original track.

A lot of this is simple networking, not studio trickery.

Well, if they're selling it legitimately, they recreated them from scratch (I haven't heard the original track.) Otherwise, some magical center channel removal technique isn't going to make it any more legal to resell content you don't own.

its definitely the original vocal tracks, not a cover. so he must have got it somewhere else off the internet, yet I cant find any trace of this quality acapella for these songs anywhere else. and im usually pretty darn good at googling

I suppose it's possible the guy that runs this could be an industry insider or has a friend with great connections that sends them to him so he can sell on his website but that seems kind of far fetched as well

check out the other acapellas this site has https://digitalmusicpool.com/new_releases/acapellas

most of them sound pretty damn good, yet with a little bit of noticeable artifacts in the very high end

ultimately I think this website did just aggregate a bunch of acapellas found online and I havent looked hard enough to find them. I cant come up with any other answer... the acapellas are too clean to be created from the original master

but that r-mix program does look pretty sweet. I tried making some acapellas with a similar vst called quikquak mashtactic and they still had very noticeable artifacting (although it did work pretty decently for the opposite process, taking the vocal out)

It's infinitely less far-fetched than the idea that someone has a special software or technique that runs counter to what we know about audio processing, and they're using it for this end-result.

sometimes they are just available for remixing, maybe not to the public and get leaked or something


definitely not stripping those from a full mix, impossible.

Sounds like the acapella.

I haven't heard that song, but you don't hear clips that clean without having the stems lol

it could be the m-s phase cancelling trick between instrumental and full mix.

it just works with great with some tunes and not at all with others.

I would say this is way too clean.
