Default How Do I remove vocals from existing songs?

How Do I remove vocals from existing songs? I need to remove vocals from songs to be recorded onto a cd. And afterwards to be used in a studio so I can add my vocals to make a demo. Does anyone know how to do this?

The best thing you can do is to just look for Karaoke versions... These days, even the most recent stuff is ported to Karaoke relatively quickly, so they should be available somewhere!

kssmn,
Welcome new member
Play it backwards, so you might avoid copyright & Intellectual property issues ( j/k)
Seriously..there isn't a sure, solid way without destroying much of the remaining audio..

good luck,
a

2nd the Karaoke versions... all plugs and apps that I have encountered that claim to do this LIE! not to mention on a more techincal stand point that it does strip a whole lot of the audio out with the ones that aim to remove just vox.. so.. best one was a plug called Extra Boy though. Still didn't cut it though. Could always contact the original engineer depending on what you are using it for to see if you could get license to the original w/o vox if its important enough.
