Vocal Removal Software.

by Daylight51 / December 2, 2007 3:10 AM PST

Hi!! Came accross a site recently offering sofware for sale. This software is said to remove vocals from audio media, leaving one with a very fine backing musical track, which can be burned, voiced over, ripped back into comp etc.
I wonder if anyone has some thoughts on this type software? My first question would be 'Is this legal'? Any other info on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

While it's well known the results are not acceptable to most, you can research this on google and even find examples.

Thanks for the info you provided. Ive checked it out in Google as you sugested and I see there are a lot of ifs and buts on the subject. Seems like something not to be dabbled with unless a person has very good knowledge of it.
Best Regards.

There are software titles you could part with money and you may not be happy with the results. But if you can find demo software, go right ahead and dabble.
