    I hope someone can help me

    I want to take out a drum sound from Given Track.
    I have the track of mixed sound.
    I have also the drum track unmixed.
    I want to cancel out the drum sound on the mixed track.
    Is there a program to do this? (like maybe karaoke or something)
    Where I could line up the 2 tracks, and the program could cancel the sound out of my MixedTrack by cancelling according to the parallel drum-alone track.
    PS! I dont canre if the result is spaces of sound. That is fine. Or if it sounds wierd or bad. I just want to do this.

    Thanks for any help It would really make my day.

    It's sketchy at best. You could try reversing the phase of the drum track and mixing it with full mix but, it will effect everything that shares frequencies with the drums. Can't you just get the unmixed tracks and re-mix them?

    that sounds good man.
    do you know how I could reverse the phase?

    There isnt an unmixed track version, but really I think it will work out fine for what Im doin, if I can just get teh drums cancelled

    Reverse (invert, flip) POLARITY. It should be an option in the track controls of a DAW or in the effects/processes of an audio editor.

    If any kind of processing was applied to the them in the mix, or on the whole mix, the drums won't cancel completely.

    It's probably going to sound horrible too since every hit is going to cause the rest of the audio to pulse. I suggested it but I guarantee it will sound horrible. Can't you just get the original multitrack session?

    and you can cut it out and still use the mix for anything.
    It hardly influences the remaining audio..... amazing.

    Anyhting else is compromising the sound too much.
