Audio track separating software (not violating rules)

by hewang19 / May 21, 2013 9:48 AM PDT

DISCLAIMER: I'm not asking for a software that can separate audio tracks from videos (as I believe that is...against the rules?)

What I need is a software (preferably free) that can separate multiple tracks/sounds within a single audio file. There is a little bell melody in one of my songs that I think would be nifty for a ringtone, but it is also backed with a bunch of other sounds that I don't want, so I would need to separate the bell melody from the rest of the sounds.

there are program that can do this. However, personally I don't have any to recommend. Why not just download some of these free audio editing software here at Cnet and try them.

Forget all the rules. Let's hear what you found that works.

As all the audio I see is either stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 even if you get the tracks out, nothing I've seen in decades does what you asked.

Forget any and all rules here. What did you find that really worked?
