How to Remove Vocals from a Song

Have you ever wanted to remove the vocals from a song? Maybe you love the music, but you want to sing along or add your own twist without the original singer’s voice. Well, you’re in luck! In this easy guide, we’ll show you step-by-step how to remove vocals from a song using simple methods. 

Method 1: 

Using an Online Tool One of the easiest ways to remove vocals from a song is by using an online tool. Here’s how: 

  1. Open your web browser and search for “vocal remover online.” 
  1. Choose a reliable website that offers a vocal removal tool. Some popular options include PhonicMind and Vocal Remover Pro. 
  1. Upload the song you want to edit. Follow the instructions on the website to do this. Wait for the tool to process the song. It will work its magic and create a new version of the song with reduced vocals. 
  1. Download the newly processed song without vocals and save it to your device. 

Method 2: 

Using Audacity (Free Software) Audacity is a free and user-friendly audio editing software that can help you remove vocals from a song. Here’s how: 

  1. Download and install Audacity from the official website (https://www.audacityteam.org/). 
  1. Open Audacity and import the song you want to edit. Go to “File” > “Import” > “Audio” and select your song. 
  1. Once the song is imported, click on the dropdown arrow next to the track name and select “Split Stereo to Mono.” This will separate the vocals from the instrumental part. 
  1. Click on the black arrow next to the track name again and choose “Make Stereo Track.” This will leave only the instrumental part, effectively removing the vocals. 
  1. Export the edited song by going to “File” > “Export” and saving it to your device. 

Method 3: 

Adjusting the Balance (For Stereo Tracks) If you have a stereo track and want to reduce vocals, you can adjust the balance between the left and right channels. Here’s how: 

  1. Open the song in a media player that has a balance adjustment feature. VLC Media Player is a good choice. 
  1. Play the song and go to the audio settings. Look for the balance or pan adjustment options. 
  1. Gradually shift the balance towards one side (either left or right). As you do this, the vocals will become less prominent. 
  1. Find a balance that suits your preference, where the vocals are minimised but the overall quality of the music is still good. 
  1. Enjoy your modified song with reduced vocals! 

In Conclusion:

Removing vocals from a song is a fun way to create your own versions or sing along without any distractions. Whether you use an online tool, free software like Audacity, or adjust the balance using a media player, these simple methods can help you achieve your desired result. So go ahead and give it a try – you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make your own customised tracks!
