how to play music without lyrics

an online service called Artificial Intelligence for Sound! can remove vocals for you automatically. I don’t know who these guys are but it sounds to me like it’s a quick route.

If you’re interested in DIY, keep on reading my answer.

For voice removal (in random order):

  • Combine L with phase-reversed R to mono
  • Apply fine-tuned, decisive EQ (e.g., mouse-drawn EQ/notch filter, with lots of DBs)
  • Use Audacity’s sampled noise filter (or Reaper’s Reafir VST in subtract mode) to remove specific sounds

For voice isolation, the best results I got involved:

  • Resample to a lower frequency, for example, 22KHz
  • Apply fine-tuned, decisive EQ (e.g., mouse-drawn EQ/notch filter, with lots of DBs) to remove all frequencies that are not within the human voice range; and the specific singer’s voice range
  • Use Audacity’s sampled noise filter or Reaper’s Reafir VST to remove specific sounds (like snare hits)
  • Scan the song to find the most convenient part to sample
  • If you end up with too little midrange, use some sort of “exciter” filter to rebuild the higher frequencies with harmonies
  • At this point, it might sound like a mess, but In the context of a remix/mashup – cover up the glitches with effects.
