teach me how to take out vocals from a track.

Postby MoozeBlaster » Fri Oct 19, 2012 9:15 pm

So i wanna remix a PSY tune from 2010 called: Right now.

How do i get the vocals? Can someone here help me, or teach me how to do it myself? I know i need both the instrumental and original to do it. But i dont know how..

Anyway. Here is the two versions:

I dont think that software will help here, but worths a try.

Basically what you wan't is to align the instrumental with the original PERFECTLY on two different tracks. And i mean sample accurately. And then switch the phase on one of them. That means inverting the waveform vertically, so it will cancel out the same things on the other except the vocals. Its like basic subtraction in mathematics.
I doubt it will work though, cause you literally need both of the songs to be mixed exactly the same. If one of them only has a compressor set slightly off, or the kick 0,5 dB louder, then you will have that information in the subtracted result.

Also if you have them in mp3, i think even the different compressing artifacts will show off in the cancellation result.

Very interesting experiment tho. If you drop me the 2 files, i wouldn't mind trying it out.
