  Filtering vocals ?        Go on top to this Page

One question, maybe not regarding psycle ...

Probably thats not possible with pyscle, but does anyone has an idea to filter out vocals from an existing track, so i have the opportunity to remix songs?
Is it possible to turn off the instruments to hear just the voice?

thanks in advance ...

Well, Psycle is probably not the best tool to use, but if you use a VST Filter that filters the midrange out from a song, just play with the frequency range to hide the vocals. Unfortunately I don't know what VST you could use for this...

On the other hand, if you get a highpass and a lowpass filter, and filter out the instruments as best you can, while keeping the voice, you save the vocal track, then invert it (in another sound editor) and merge the two tracks.

I don't think it's possible to remove vocals from a track.. Sounds too difficult. At least there isn't an effect machine which would do that.

Well, it depends.

In general, there is no 100% working solution for issues like this one. It depends pretty much on what kind of vocals need to be erased. In any case, those vocals must have some unique characteristics (e.g. use an exclusive range of frequencies or they're only audible on the left channel etc.) You can try filtering the vocals with a parametric eq etc, but if the vocals and instruments overlapp in terms of frequencies and panning, you'll not succeed.

It will be really hard to get ONLY vocals. There will always be something from the other instruments too. And using EQ changes the tone of the vocals too.

there is a plugin which tries to do that...i cant remember what its called, but i think it was on databaseaudio.

the way it worked was to remove the sounds that were spread evenly on both stereo channels or something, apparently thats where the vocals usually lie. i guess it would only work for well produced pop songs though, as most other types of music are more experimental.

I have a winamp plugin (AnalogX Vocal Remover) which tries to remove the vocals from a track. The technique is based on the presumption that the vocals are the only instrument which is evenly on left and right channel. In some cases it removes most of the vocals, in some cases it doesn't.

Usually when the vocals are removed some of the other instruments are gone too - bass and drums are usually balanced to the center, more or less. And even though the vocals are removed some reverbs and delays still remain.

But you should try it to see if it suits to your needs.
