Getting rid of background music

I am making a fanvid for a specific TV Show and am new to using this program. I need one specific audio file for the video, however the clip has high degrees of background music, which cannot be there during the video. I am trying to get rid of the music, but instead I seem to be getting rid of the audio in the clip at the same time. Like I said…I’m totally new to this. Can anyone possibly help me with how to filter out the background music, but leave the audio clip itself?

You’ll need to get that sound from someplace “clean.” We can’t split two different shows from each other.

Number four.
Don’t do any of the other three, either.

The Four Horsemen of Audio Recording (reliable, time-tested ways to kill your show)
– 1. Echoes and room reverberation (Don’t record the show in your mum’s kitchen.)
– 2. Overload and Clipping (Sound that’s recorded too loud is permanently trashed.)
– 3. Compression Damage (Never do production in MP3.)
– 4. Background Sound (Don’t leave the TV on in the next room.)

Have you some details? You can provide a link or attach a sample file. We can’t see your current project.

Here a clip of the episode:

The segment from my DVD that will be used is located at roughly around 20:00 to 20:42

That’s probably the worst segment of the whole episode for an extraction. As a rule of thumb, drums, cymbals and any noisy, voice-like sounds can’t be eliminated entirely. Since this is a fully mixed down song that is added, there will be a lot with the same frequencies and common characteristics.
After extracting the center, you’ll end up with the speech and something like a phone or radio playing in the background:

But maybe this isn’t the right part (due to the initial commercial).
I suggest that you re-act the whole scene…

Sadly I figured that would be the case. Thanks for the help. :slight_smile:

Robert, Can you please describe how did you make all of the process, i got a audio that needs that kind of treatment :mrgreen:
