Hi,

I'm not trying to be funny, but were you able to sort of remove the vocals? Did they sound diminished? How far did you get?

When playing the cd of my songs, the vocals are barely heard, but the beat is clear. This can be useful, but is there something I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

Can you get rid of the vocals? Is there a way to diminish them?

This a very tough task to accomplish.
Music is in stereo, meaning there are only two tracks or sides. It is not as easy as turning off the vocal track.

What is actually happening is that the software uses preset EQ settings to try to pull out frequencies that the human voice projects across.

This can also effect the sound of the music.

Another aspect is that with most recordings (used to be anyway), vocals are panned straight down the center, and vocal removing technologies used that to try to remove the center sounds, but some songs may have a stereo vocal and this will not work.

In short, some songs will work better than others when attempting vocal removal.

If I find the need to do this, I usually use the best preset from DJ Twist and Burn that works for me, then I use a very precise parametric equalizer to attempt further removal without killing the music too much.

The extra eq-ing occurs within Mixcraft.

I have acid music studio 6.0.

I was wondering if it made sense to do my start and end points there, then throw them in twist and burn for mixing.

What do you think?

Thanks!

I have never used that app so i really can't say with any certainty.
You could do your start and end point in Mixcraft though :-)

Ok, I'll go do a little research on mixcraft.

Thanks for the help
