How to remove vocals from a song


| July 31, 2016

We often get these questions: How do I remove the vocal from a song? or how do I raise or lower the volume of the vocal from an already mastered track?
We recently came across ADX TRAX Pro 3.0 by Audinamix. This is a great tool for DJs, Remixers and Post-production facilities.


It allows you to:

-Create vocal and/or instrumental riffs to drop into a mix
-Create music beds from well know songs to mashup and mix up
-Create contemporary and artistic remixes and mashups using any vocal and/or instrumental
-Clean up a recording that may have mic bleed from other instruments into the vocal track
-Add volume to a vocal that was mixed and mastered too low
-Add effects and processing to a vocal or solo instrument that is already mixed without need of separate stems

Here’s a world renowned sound engineer Dave Pensado talking about this software:

If you use it let us know how it worked for you.

We geeks love this one! You can now see a preview of the audio waveform and skip around the track faster than ever before.
