Erasing backing vocals

Hey there,
Newbie here. Does anybody know how to get rid of backing vocals in an mp3? I just downloaded a karaoke version of a song and i can’t get rid of it…

This is quite a similar task to “removing background music”. The short answer is that unless you have the original multi-track recordings, then it can’t be done. The longer answer is that you may be able to remove backing vocals if they are panned dead centre and the rest of the music is not dead centre, or, you may be able to make some degree of removal using the (non-free) VST plug-ins “ExtraBoy” or “VoiceTrap”, (but success is likely to be limited at best).

Also, please try to post on the appropriate part of the forum - the “Forum Issues” board is for things like “How do I change my forum user name”.
