6 Open Source Software Projects of (Musical) Notation As it's been pointed out before, there seems to be a sizable overlap between open source hardware and software enthusiasts and amateur musicians. And while some of you are making music through the tried-and-true "let's see what that button does" method, there are a few of you who might be interested in composing music the old-fashioned way -- digitally producing paper-based music sheets.

How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac.

Sight-reading Caravaggio's Rest on the Flight into Egypt (1594–96) Terminology Sight-reading Authors in music literature commonly use the term "sight-reading" generically for "the ability to read and produce both instrumental and vocal music at first sight ... the conversion of musical information from sight to sound" (Udtaisuk 2005).
