on pro tools? i just want to leave the vocals. anybody that can help?
That is not possible.
Try to find the acapella.
I think the real question here is how to remove Mp3's from music!
It'd be easier to remove the metal from a car and just leave the paint intact.
well, you could remake the song
Find an instrumental version of the song. Play the instrumental with the original and flip the phase in the instrumental track. this will keep vocals and remove music.
well for the most part itll remove.
the sound waves have to be basically identical for complete phase out...which is hard to do not unless its a digital synth or somethin of the sort.
....and even that is pushing it.
This is pure speculation never-done-it-myself, but have a try:
Google for "vocal eliminator" or "vocal removal". Get one or several of the tools. I do not know which works, probably none "perfectly", but something may give you an acceptable result.
Once you've removed the vocal and have an (almost) music only track, then play it back together with the original and flip the phase on one. Perhaps you should play them back both in mono(!?!). This should cancel out most of the music.

None of these flipping the phase ideas will work. We once spent the good part of a day trying them for a client. What we were left with was a mess. Someday this may be possible but not with today's software or hardware. This is something they seem to be able to do on TV series CSI but not in the "real" world.
Once those guys on CSI flipped a dude out of phase and he just dist-appeared!!
It was like magic!!!
And you can't show it if it isn't true so there!!!!
It IS possible to suck the vocals out of some music.
Success rate TOTALLY depends on the mix.
MP3s are BAD source material for this sort of work. Get your music from the original CD.
Leaving JUST the vocals? Not likely that you'll be able to pull that off with any measure of success.

They have thousands of acapellas so maybe the one your after will be there.
Failing that there are numerous tutorials on the DIY vocal extraction methods in their forums for you to have a go at.
hope this helps
