So you want to impress your friends with your singing skills, but they only listen to boring old top 40 songs--and your brand-new karaoke machine is broken. There's still hope. AnalogX Vocal Remover works on the same principles that hardware removers do: In most instances vocals are equally mixed in both channels and can be identified and removed by simply changing the phase on one channel by 180 degrees. Although this won't remove vocals in all instances, it works in many cases and can sometimes be used to remove bass or breakbeat sections, which is great for sampling. Depending on the effects used on the vocals, sometimes the reverb or ambience remains.
Vocal Remover requires a stereo sound stream and supports either 16-bit or 32-bit data types. To use the Winamp Vocal Remover, you must already have Winamp installed as well as a stereo sound stream, and it supports only 16-bit data types.
