If the music and vocals were recorded on separate tracks, you can easily use Audacity to separate the tracks and mute the music. Otherwise, I don't think Audacity has a function for extracting just the vocals from a mixed track. I know there are certain tools for masking the vocals and leaving the instrumental, such as on karaoke systems.
I have wondered the same thing, I only have experience with audacity so far and am just starting to get somewhat good with it. I was just thinking yesterday that i wondered if there was a way i could take vocals out of the music. I will investigate the posted link there and give it a try. Thank you.
kprimm, Removing the vocals can be done with Audacity, what I'm trying to do is remove the music and leave the vocals. If I remember right you have to mix both channels together then use the remove vocals feature.
Calloween, Is there a tool for lyric editting or do you have to search for it, I just downloaded Goldwave and probably won't get to it until the weekend. Thanks for your help.
