Question

What software was used to create the karaoke music?

As a karaoke fan and at times when a song is not available commercially I would create the music with vocal removal softwares which don't do a good job at it. I have found uploads in YouTube and the one that impresses me most is the uploads of SmanusakSomboonsub. Examples:
Strangers in the Night (Frank Sinatra), And I Love You So
(Perry Como). I contacted Smanusak S. but I have not received a reply. He probably didn't want to reveal the secret sauce. I just wanted to know what software was used in making the karaoke music. Would anyone know?

Smanusak S

I don't think he is a member in Cnet. His uploads are just impressive - very clean and beautifully done.
It looks like he just has one template he is using over and over. I tried contacting him thru YouTube.

I see.

I had a dig around on some sites (his profile) and couldn't find anything about what he uses.
There are quite a few sites with free karaoke software why not try out a few of these.

s/b in windows 8

Not that it matters on this topic but I mistakenly put it in windows 7 - should be in windows 8.

That's OK.

If you're looking to record your songs, why not use a DAW. Quite a few free ones out there.

Make the karaoke

What I am looking for is to be able to make the karaoke music with lyrics (no vocals) just like
what he is able to do from any cd, or mp3 or whatever.

Right I understand.

There are sites that offer free and legal karaoke songs. I've listened to some and they're pretty good. It's 1 am here and I'm off to bed but I'll check back in the morning. Meantime maybe another member will have some advice.

I am thinking maybe you won't find any.

the market is too small...you might have to do your own. Basically it's music video with subtitle...right?

Some software had to do it

Exactly what I'd like to do. Be able to make my own karaoke music because it is not available
or when using vocal remover software, it doesn't totally remove the vocals. It can still be heard
so it's not clean. Am looking for that software the guy uses to produce the very clean karaokes.

Wait a second.

Voice removal has tomes on the web and your last comment seems to tell me you expected voice removers to work. I never did.

As Bob said...

voice removal doesn't work. I just listened to this guy on youtube and he's not using voice removal to do this. My guess is he gets his songs from a site something like this.
http://www.karaoke-version.com/ Here you can download songs with CD+ G.

There are loads of sites like this, some free and some for a small fee. As to removing vocals from cds and such, not going to work well. Have a trawl on the web to find sites like above and you may find what you're looking for.

No, I wasn't expecting it to work as it should.

After trying a number of voice removal softwares unsuccessfully, I had a low expectation
since. They either diminish the voice, drop some instruments, etc.. depending on how the original
was recorded. That's precisely the reason why I got curious how Smanusak makes his karaokes.
I want to know the software he is using. His products are so clean and clear. He's got one template he is using in the karaokes. Take a listen to some of his karaoke music in YouTube. I don't think it's done with a voice removal software. And I am not expecting anymore a reply from him on this matter.

Remember, a well done topic.

Way I see it Bob...

The OP wants to make CD+G discs. I supplied a link in my post above. If that's not his goal I don't know what else to suggest. I'd go for free midi files and do the work in a DAW if sound quality was paramount.

I see that was covered, then they broached voice removers

It sounds like they want that too.

Just gotta try something out . . .

Thanks for the tips, guys. I remember Audacity was one I tried unsuccessfully. Of course I ran it without
the VST plugins.
