Hi all. So I’m new to this whole mixing, engineering, recording, etc. thing. I am looking for a way to create an instrumental to a song with an amazing cello base. After doing all the google searches I possibly can I now know that its almost impossible to completely remove the vocals. However, after playing around with Audacity and its vocal removal options a bit I cant seem to remove the vocals without removing the cello (which is the whole reason I want the instrumental to begin with). In fact I have gotten it to a place where the cello is almost completely gone, and the vocals are dimmed or muted but far from anything close to being silenced.
I think that the vocals and the cello are the two major components of the piece with a backdrop of piano, keyboard, and drums. I don’t know if this has any effect.
