voice remover


I want to remove the voice in an mp3 file but it doesn’t work.
Can anybody help me please.

Probably not.

Select the whole song by clicking just above MUTE.
Effect > Vocal Removal > Enter.

If that didn’t work or at least do something, then your song may not be a good candidate for vocal removal.

Mono song tracks (one blue wave) do not work at all. Stereo Shows with the lead singer not in the left-right middle don’t work at all. There is a long list of musical tools and effects that can be applied to a show that sound terrific, but mess up vocal removal. High MP3 compression can mess up Vocal Removal.

My lists are out of date, but there is a new Vocal Removal and Isolation available I think in Audacity 2.1.0 and 2.1.1. But that one is an improvement on the older one. If the older one didn’t do anything, I think your only hope is search for a karaoke version of the song to buy.

Looking for the new tool…


Vocal Reduction and Isolation is new in 2.1.1 and it is documented at http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/vocal_reduction_and_isolation.html.
