    i have a grip of freestyles me and my friends were just playin around makin and i want to cut the music out the background and put a bunch of the lyrics together and then add a new beat for the entire track. currently im using Nero for recording and editing music. i tried to figure it out but just couldnt do it. but atleast i found this forum :)

    so any help would be chill and the more the better, any recomendations for progams would be koo but if nero will do it then i got a big fat GEAH goin out to the knowledge beholder.

    Unfortunately, you will never be able to completely remove the music from the audio, barring special circumstances. The one thing that can be done is to remove anything that is panned off to the sides and leave the stuff in the center untouched. On hip hop tracks, this will usually mean that the kick, snare, and bass will be left in the recording. I don't think Nero has the cababilities to mix and invert channels (the two things you need to be able to do). There might be a freeware standalone program out there that will do it. Try Google. My best advice woudl be to reperform the raps. I know, it's not freestyle anymore, but it won't be the first time someone has repeated their 'freestyles'.

    Oh, and welcome to recording.org!

    nero isnt so good, i also have cool edit pro, im not to good with this program but im trying. what does mixing and inverting files do? and how does panning work~~do you have to enter a pan before you start the recording session?

    once again any help would be chill.
