    Hi guys,

    I am wondering if there's any software available online that can mute the voices of singers on those MTVs but still keep the music intact, ie like KTV version.

    Any help/suggestions is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You're dreaming the impossible dream here. There is no real way to remove all of the voice from a composite recording. There are programs that attempt it, but 100% success is impossible.

    Even 10% is pretty hard. You're better off asking the record label for that.

    I really doubt that works, and from what it says, it seems like it's based on a bad method (it says it removes them "...by making the assumption that vocals are usually recorded equally on both channels, while the music itself is not..." which is often not true.).

    He just asked for suggestions. That is the only one I know of. I am sure if they google searched they would find more. I have use plenty of AnalogX's utilities and many of them do work as advertised. I have never tried this one so I don't know how well it works.

    I wasn't trying to say that your post was bad (or be mean :eek: ) , but rather that it probably wouldn't be worth trying.

    I can't remember the name of the application, so I know this doesn't help a lot, but maybe it'll trigger someone else's memory. I read a review of an audio application in CPU Magazine a couple of months ago. It's used by professional audiophiles and DJs to manipulate music tracks in all sorts of ways. I believe the price was around $600, and it's pretty complicated, so it's not for the average user. I don't know if it removed voice tracks or not, but it seemed like it performed many advanced functions.

    Nothing is really "free" to try, you have to consider the time you spend. :)

    I'll be stunned if anyone has voice track removal software, but I've been stunned before. :) All I've ever seen or read about it says it's a very thorny issue and an automated method is beyond current technology. I know some people manually remove the voice tracks, but that must be really labor intensive!

    Yes, and that's removing them through something, like this.

    I don't know about you, but I don't see any lyrics being sung in that. :p

    True. I always do say Time is Money. But that would only be worth a quarter with the amount of money my employer pays me.

    It wasn't Adobe. I would have remembered if it were from a major company I'd heard of before. This was more obscure though apparently well-known in the music biz.
