I would like to record my voice over a rap song, and I would like to do it good so that I don't hear much of the original artist's voice, but more of mine, and the original sound.
( keep the music, but not the artist's words )

Is there a good way to do this??

Thanks. ( links of specific guides or details would be appreciated. )

This is simply not possible... Go ahead find some stuff out in google if you want. But you will never find a real solution to this problem. There is no way for you to take out an artists existing vocal and still have the instrumental remain in even the slightest fair quality of sound. This is an age old myth in the recording industry. Some swear they can do it but only provide mediocre solutions that leave the instrumental sounding as if your speakers were blown. Bottom line don't even bother trying, and if you need the instrumental that bad go to a record store and buy a dj version of the single you'd like the instrumental for $10.

Hi

There is no way you can extract the vocals off the top of the track, some say you can but in my experience the results sound terrible
this method does very good results

you can also get the song with the lyrics on, find a place with 4 or 8 beats with no singing
get a program called cooledit pro insert the song - find the bars you want - place a start & end marker and then extract the the multi channel
Right click on the song and loop duplicate 10 times or how long you would like the song to be

this will give you an instrumental, if you want i can help just pm me



check out the mixes i have done
