    I thought I had seen somewhere there was a program that could delete vocals on recorded music and leave the music intact. I have no idea how that could work. Anyone know anything about this? My niece had some demos done and now wants to use the music tracks to sing live to for auditions, but the person who recorded it didn't save the individual tracks. All she has is the completed master tracks with her vocal already on it. Thanks.

    One technique for reducing or removing vocals is to diminish the center content in the mix - vocals are typically center panned. This can be achieved with the Waves Center plugin.

    This technique may be too aggressive - bass and kick drum also typically reside in the center: frequency targeting is necessary to mitigate the loss of other material in the center.
