You may wonder how it's possible to remove the vocals from
music that has already been recorded? It may seem like magic,
but it's possible due to the way the music was recorded.
Music is recorded in stereo which means that two microphones
are used to record the music, one microphone for what will
ultimately play from the left speaker and another microphone
for what will play on the right speaker.
Stereo recording gives music a fuller sound when you listen
to it. As you stand between the two speakers and listen to the
music you may hear a violin over towards the right, and you
may hear a flute over towards the left. Generally, you'll hear
the vocals in the exact center, even though there is no speaker
in the center, it's an illusion.
When the music was recorded, since the vocalist is generally
in the center directly between the two microphones,
the vocals are exactly the same on the left and the right, and
this gives the perception the vocals are directly in the center,
while the music sounds slightly different on the left and right
This is what makes the magic possible. The vocal remover
software cancels out whatever is exactly the same on the
left and right sides, but leaves what is unique on the left
side and the right side. The result is that whatever is the
same on the left & right, usually the vocals, is removed.
The parts unique on the left and right, usually the music,
We also provide details on how to deal with vocals that are
only on the left or right sides, and how to preserve bass
to give your final recording the most rich sound possible.
To get technical, our vocal remover
plug-ins use phase
cancellation with frequency removal or retention and spectral
subtraction with the ability to retrieve center-panned material.
But there's no need to worry; this powerful processing is
presented in an easy-to-use interface with step-by-step
instructions. And it's all backed up with our full time support
staff who is here to help you. We've helped customers
