    Remove Words from WMA

    Hi All

    I am probably asking the impossible here but I have been asked by Jezzarette 2 to remove the words sung on a WMA formatted song track and just leave the musical score underneath.

    I have hunted around and found various little freeware and shareware softwares but cannot find anything that does the job. This is more likely to be that I am not using the correct terminology, any assistance would be great.

    Enjoy the brilliant website design of Vogone vocal remover! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Software that also claims to be able to filter (part of the) vocals from a music track: FlexiMusic and Music Morpher.

    ooh ooh that looks very exciting.

    I had a bright idea and found that by seerching for "karaoke + [mysong]" I could pay the prince sumof 1.50 for a certain track which sounded pretty good but I think J2 wants the true ROCK sound <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Could you not ring up the manager of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and get them to play it for J2? I'm sure they'd even record it for you for not much more...

    Does the LPhO have the "true ROCK sound"?

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>I doubt it as J2 wanted the sound track to this

    for a school show. All I can say her music teacher and her have excellent music taste. I was worried about copyright so my option was probably safer.

    I am just trying to get the auditory vision of a LPO screaming viola solo as opposed to the electric guitar <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    "Auditory vision" as opposed to "visual sound", perhaps?! And I'd be delighted if you could point me at a piece of music containing a viola solo (they are usually very undemonstrative instruments, and few in number compared with violins).

    Re: this thread from a couple of years ago - <post:=379,166>post 379,166</post:>

    I just gave a test on the link to Vogone provided by Hans and didn't have any more luck on my Stevie Wonder track than I did back in that old thread. I don't know diddly about frequency ranges and such but it looks like WyllyWylly's remarks in that old thread are true as ever. I suppose if I ever get up the nerve to sing at a gathering, I'll have to spring for one of the (many) karaoke tracks available on the web, usually for USD about $3.

    Keep us posted on how YOU make out. It's a fun project (or should be).

    PS My two preferences cover a crazy musical spectrum: Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You" and the always popular Johnny Cash in "Folsom Prison Blues"

    Doesn't J1 or J2 play the ol' liquorice stick? They could knock out the tune on that.

    May avoid copyright issuses associated with messing with the original but it wouldn't avoid performing rights issues.

    Hi John

    The only piece of Viola music I know comes from the Doctor Who Sound Track. It is an unusual piece of music where the viola is played sul ponticello and provides a sinister and ghostly sound, perfect for the DW episode it played to:
