Can I make a Karoke song?
« on: 23/12/2008 14:45:15 »
Is there any free editor that will let me take out the singing to a song?

The free "Audacity" sound editor may be able to do this ...

Can I remove the vocals from a recording to make a Karaoke track?

This is possible only for certain stereo tracks. When the vocals are exactly the same on both stereo channels, you can remove them by “subtracting” one channel from the other. This works for many studio recordings, where the vocal track is mixed exactly in the center.

To do this in Audacity:

Import your stereo file into Audacity.
Open the track menu (click the arrow next to the track title), and choose “Split Stereo Track.”
Select the lower track (the right channel) by clicking it in the area around the mute/solo buttons.
Choose “Invert” from the Effects menu.
Using the track menus, change each track to “Mono.”
Press the Play button to hear the results. If you are lucky, the voice will be gone but most of the other instruments will be unaffected, just like a karaoke track. You can use the Export commands in the File menu to save the results.

If the vocals are not exactly the same on both stereo channels, there are some other techniques or optional plugins you can try.
Please see our Vocal_Removal Wiki page for more details.

Oh yay! It works for that song!! Once I get the mp3 version of the song I want to do hopefully it works. well you can still sorta hear him sing , but you really gotta listen and its only in a few spots.

This would really help me out on learning the piano/guitar parts too because i don't gotta listen to the singer =P

Equalisation to remove the part of the audio spectrum which contains the main components of the vocal might help but this will also remove the instruments in that part of the spectrum : the track will be butchered and a lot of the vocal will still be present.

A 15 band graphic equaliser for Audacity is available free ...

15 Band Equalizer:

This effect can equalize more than one band at the same time

You have 15, to choose and you can manipulate whole of them moving their sliders
