Instrumentals

Postby dclark0699 » Wed Dec 12, 2007 12:03 am

Does anyone know a place to find instrumental versions of popular songs? Or a way to remove the singer's voice from a song?

In particular I'm looking for an instrumental version of "Cool the Engines" by Boston.

I don't know too much about this. But I've noticed when I've searched for songs on limewire that there sometimes comes an option of just an instrumental of the song. Maybe searching for the instrumental version in specific would work, but I'm sure there's someone out there that can help you out a little bit more than I can. ;-)

I'm sure there is software out there, probably easy to use and cheap even, that can take vocals off of a track for you.

Isn't that what karaoke is? I would look for karaoke music.

Jose, you don't know of any mixing software that can do that? Possibly even a download of some sort might. Can't be too difficult to eliminate vocals.

I know there are some programs that can strip vocals, but I think they usually take other parts of the song with it. Unfortunately I don't know specifically the names of any, but I'm sure you can find something if you Google it.

Thanks for the responses. I worked on it for a while this morning.

It must be something in the way Boston recorded their music, because I can eliminate the vocals from other songs, but not any by Boston :-?

Instead I think I'm just going to loop some of the guitar parts that already don't have vocals. I don't need it to be terribly long, I just want to use it as theme music to something I'm going to do for OSU's student television channel.

I haven't found any good way to do it.

I've been trying to find versions of my favorite songs without drum tracks for years, but it can't really be done. You just have to hope the drummer of that band puts out an instructional package that include tracks without drums, which isn't too common among popular bands. I'd imagine the same would go for vocals.

You can always find MIDI versions of the songs, but those often suck and sound very cheesy.
