Hi. I'm wondering if it's possible to remove the music of a song but to keep the vocals. Thanks :)

That links to how to remove the vocals, not music.

You want vocal isolation. I think at least one of these packages claims to be able to do that.

We warn people not to fall in love with this idea. It never actually works very well or sometimes at all. For example, if you have a highly compressed MP3 as a master, it fails and if you have a mono master, you're dead.

Can Anyone suggest any of those? Thanks ~ Like for example, some people make remixes of songs but use different background music. They have the vocals part but not the music part.

I wouldn't expect any of them to work fantastically well. It's like trying to unscramble an egg.

Yes, but they have the original multi-track version to work with, so they don't need to extract the parts from the mix, they have the tracks before they have been mixed.
