Izotope RX 8 vocal removing...will this work on rappers?

Just saw the demo on Izotope RX 8. Looks like the end of youtube copycat beat makers if it really works as good on spoken word as on singers.

2020 and AI. The end is near...jk. Looks pretty dope.

It works. But not 100% all the time.
On some material it really works close to 100% though.

I just tried it on 99 problems; vocal distortion is still audible.
On moment of clarity almost all vocals disappear but the music becomes a bit warbly.

There's an Lp named Death mix released in 1983 on Paul Winley records. It was a very poor 2nd or 3rd generation cassette tape to vinyl transfer recording of an Old School Hip Hop event with Dj Jazzy Jay ,Red alert & the Zulu Nation. There's some history behind it so I used it for a restoration project where I investigated what was possible with those tools.

It's incomplete & very very over-processed.

I used digital media & re-arranged the break beats for the retro scratching & routines.And I used guitar amps to distort the extracted vocals.

There's also some information on similar extraction tools on this page.

Like others have said, its decent and will work well sometimes, but its not a magic bullet.

It's a great tool and can solve some issues but you can't polish a turd as they say... If there are too many unwanted artifacts/noise, it will not get you all the way there.
