    I don't think it's really possible once it's mixed?

    I've heard of a few programs, tried one myself but it just lowered the vocals, never actually removed them.

    But keepin this up incase someone knows of a program that actually works and isn't some warez type shit.

    no....you would have to delete certain fequencies to remove a beat or vocals and have just one or the other left...it is very tedious and could take hours or days, and in the end, the vocals will not be fully gone

    The Vocal remover shit is a myth. it does not exist. if it did it would cost millions.

    ^Good point.. there are plenty of instrumentals that you can't find, if that was a possible program every instrumental would be easy to get.

    use subtractive eq to remove as many frequencies as possible.... if there's a lot of instruments or if the instruments are loud... then yes... expect the vocals to be watered down a bit...

    There are ways, some of whcih aren't sure fire, and some that can work, but you have to have a hi quality file (not an mp3). Also, it won't work as well with real instruments, but samples are perfect.

    If there are instrument solos, start with them. Say the song starts with a kick only, copy that. inverse the phase on it, and line up that kick with every other kick in the song. They have to match perfectly, so it might be wise to find out the BPM of the song, and use a sequencer to do it.

    All the kicks should now be out of the song. Keep doing this with any instruments you can hear by themselves.

    Like I said, it might not work, but it's worth a try if you really need it.

    When you remove the beat, you have the vocals left, and I think that's what he wanted, if not, take your newly made accapella (that you probably wont get, but anyways) and phase invert that against the original song. Voila, you got the beat.

    the information given is for people to think about new ways to do shit, not theft. It's from a producer's point of view, on how to fuck with audio.

    If I really needed a vocal seperated from a beat, this would be the second thing I would do. The first would to be contacting the person who made the beat, but if that can't happen, then you get other methods.

    But for real, if it's for school or something, go ahead, but if it's for a demo, get permission at least. If you're trying to put together a CD, don't bother with this, your CD won't go anywhere if you can't contact people for permission and rely on jacking.

    That's why you should save your multi-track session.. I almost always do.
