I was wondering if it's possible to get the vocals from a song?
In other words, can I take a song and some lower the volume on everything to get the vocals?
I posted a topic a couple days ago asking for the acapellas for a song, but they don't exist...anywhere. So I'm wondering if lowering the volume, or an alternative way, can give me the vocals I'm looking for?

Thanks in advanced!

There are plenty of ways to rip vocals from a song, but I believe it is illegal...

Well... if you can get the exact instuimental without the vocals, you can invert the wave patterns and overlay them... if you do this right... it will cancel out everything but the vocals.. though it has to be the exact same instrumental part... and if its not the same format it can get messy(aka not work)... but if its close enough it will do alot of cancelation. Lower stuff is easiest to get to cancel...


Mue = music engineering... its not a typo.. it was just a dumb thing to do

I'm pretty sure ripping vocals from a copywrited song is definantly illegal.

Wouldn't be smart to post anything like that on here.

If the vocals are panned directly in the middle of the mix, you can cancel out everythign else somehow. I don't remember how, so google that method.

Or if you have an instrumental of the song, that is the same recording (without vocals obviously), you can use the method that Muesical-Pope stated.

Or, you could just look for the a cappella on a website somewhere.

Other than that, you're probably not going to be able to get it.
