How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs

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. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.) Import Some Audio 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) Wrap Up Cheers!

2 Min. Ableton Tip #3: Routing for Live Looping When I started using Ableton Live, one of the first things I wanted to learn how to do was live, on the fly looping. The following video shows one way you can accomplish just that. Because Ableton allows you to route any track to any other track, it is pretty easy to set up. In the video example, I have a midi track with an instrument on it (PS that instrument will be available soon!). The instrument is routed to four different audio tracks.

Cheap iPad Mixing Board – The Numark IDJLIVE for iPad/iPod This Christmas, one of the most bought gifts, (surprisingly), is the Mixing Boards for the iPad, iPhone or iPod. Although this is mainly useful for DJ’s, it is somewhat inexpensive considering that it is a miniature DJ set. Just because it’s miniature doesn’t mean it’s fully functional, because in reality it works just like a real DJ booth! This can bring hours of fun, because you are able to mix song after song, and you can even record it on to your iPod when you’re done!

I've seen many envelope tutorials online, some offer downloadable templates, some show fancy paper folding techniques and some suggest specific measurements to create your own D.I.Y. envelopes. I'm going to show you how to replicate any interesting envelope that you might already have, no measuring involved! Click below for the how-to: 1.

SCHOPENHAUER'S 38 STRATAGEMS, OR 38 WAYS TO WIN AN ARGUMENT Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), was a brilliant German philosopher. These 38 Stratagems are excerpts from "The Art of Controversy", first translated into English and published in 1896. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. Creative Reverb Techniques in Ableton Live - Ableton Live You are probably used to creating your beats, bass and synth sounds, then creating a reverb bus channel, and applying some of that reverb effect to your individual instruments. Sure, this is a nice way to create a room effect that is coherent amongst your instruments and sounds, but what about using some creative techniques with reverb? I am going to show you how to use reverb a little differently to create interesting processing effects with your tracks. I will be using Ableton, but these same principles can be applied in other DAWs as well. Step 1 – Side-chain Reverb
