Is it possible to remove Vocals from an mp3 track

  BigAl127 17:33 18 Aug 2007

I have an mp3 file that my son and his mates have produced.

However, I now want to make another version of it without the vocals and tinker about with some special effects on the instrumental part.

So Somehow I'm hoping to split the audio and vocal parts of the file, and wondered if this was possible?

I've had a brief play about with Audacity without success.

Any advise welcome, or i'll have to wait till they get together again, and can record me the instrumental version.

Thanks in advance.

I had already googled, but didn't get the site you got in your results. Obviously depends what is typed in the search box.

I had also searched the forum before posting.

I did find vremover, and am waiting for my registration to be processed.

i don't mind paying for a program, as long as I know it'll do the job.

There are examples for doing this from DVDs - don't know if it would work in this case:

Most editing software will remove the vocal but it will be gone as in nt available as a seperate track.As for tinkering with the sound Audacity a freebie has a reasonable rnge of effects. However none will extract the backing and leave the vocal even Adobe audacity wont do that

Sorry that should be Adobe Audition

Also i believe Sony Sound Forge offer amazing sound editing utilities. might be worth a gander, at a price like!
