Today one of my friends asked me how to do vocal removal nicely. He told me that he had tried some other softwares like Audacity and the result wasn’t good. I think many people may have these kind of problems too so I should help others.
In this article, I’ll use an audio editing software called Adobe Audition. (Beware: It’s not a freeware and you can get a trial version from Adobe easily.)
P.S. I’m using Adobe Audition CS6 but the method I mentioned here also works in the previous versions.
First, open Audition and load the audio file in.
Then, click [Favorites -> Remove Vocals].
After the processing, it is basically finished. However, if you want to remove the vocals even further, you can follow the steps below:
Click [Effects -> Special -> Vocal Enhancer].
Then click [Music -> Apply]. The music will get enhanced and the vocal will be further suppressed.
Finally, save the file and you’re finished!
