    To edit just a single vocal snip out of a song would be extraordinarily difficult. Even advanced audio mixing programs have difficulty removing vocal tracks without ruining the underlying music. To really do this, you need access to the multi-track master of the song so that you avoid destroying the quality of the music. Vocal cuts in a final mix tend to produce a watery sound that is only marginally listenable.

    Not knowing how adept you are with audio mixing software, it is hard to make a recommendation. Your best bet would be to peruse Google for vocal cut software and play around with it to see if you can achieve an effect close to what you are looking for. Good luck!

    One of the radio empires must have that software, the "today's R&B and classic soul" station has done quite a number on Prince's "Erotic City." In particular, the word "funk" just vanishes at various points...

    I wonder, because I too have heard several songs that have mysterious gaps in the vocal track. I know that Wal-Mart in all its righteousness has managed to force some artists to release "clean" versions of their work. In some cases, that means an entire CD full of silence. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Actually, I think the record companies release these to the radio stations so as not to offend them asses, er, the masses. For the privilege of being offended you must pay for the CD. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
