How to Remove Vocals from a Song Quickly and Simply

Removing the vocals from a song is essential for those who wish to use the track for a re-recording, whether it is to create their own playbacks, practice their vocal skills, pay tribute to a famous singer, or simply for a karaoke performance.

Regardless of the reason, you will need to remove the vocals from the track to make your composition on top, separating the singer's voice and the instruments. This way, you can create two tracks: one with the audio vocals and one with the production’s instrumental part.

Thus, you can record your own version of the song and use it on different platforms and devices.

Which software to use in order to remove vocals?

Some time ago, Audacity was one of the most-used audio editing software to remove vocals from songs.

But as technology has advanced, better options have emerged on the market, such as Moises. The platform uses artificial intelligence to remove vocals from songs, separate audio tracks, isolate instruments, and master tracks to provide quality sounds no matter the style of sound.

Moises is easy to use and can be used by everyone, irrespective of their experience with music.

How does it work?

It is possible to remove vocals in Audacity, Moises, or any other voice extraction tool because the voices of the songs in stereo are recorded between the instruments, making the removal possible. Still, it is a job that depends on the quality of the audio. The better the recording, the better the track will be after the vocals are removed.
