In 2022, you no longer need to search for complex software to isolate a vocal from a song. Thanks to a plethora of online services and tools, some even powered by the next-gen AI technology, you can do the job without any sound-making skills. No expensive professional software is required; you can split any track at the touch of a button. 

The main advantage of these solutions is that you do not need to be a professional sound designer, sound engineer or composer to get a quality result.

Apart from isolating a vocal, you can also get backtracks and instrumental parts removed from audio and video. Piano, guitar, bass and drums stems are easy to remove with specific software we’re to tell you about. 

Note, though, that if you are going to cut a voice from a track you do not own, the output file can be used for personal purposes only. Using a homemade version of a composition, for example, as a backing track in live performances is illegal. 

If you need to remove vocals from your own composition, you can use them as you wish.

Remove a Vocal From a Song With Telegram Bots 

Bots in the Telegram messenger can come in quite handy to do the task. Besides, with their help, you can isolate a voice from the audio on your smartphone because these bots are effortless to handle. You don’t need to install the messenger on your computer; just find the bot on your mobile device. 

All you need to do is text the @voice_remover_bot on Telegram and then send an mp3 file that needs to be processed.

You only have to wait a few seconds; the bot will send you two output files called “accompaniment.mp3” and “vocals.mp3”.

Note that the instrumental part will sound slightly different from the original song because of the removed voice parts. 

Isolate a Voice From Audio With AI-based Solutions 

Neural networks trained on musical compositions will do all the work for you just right. AI-powered solutions are free or considerably cheap (so far) and do not require special knowledge to separate vocals and music.

The process of cutting out a voice in a track comes down to cutting out specific frequencies that correspond to a human voice. Meaning that, along with the voice, all other sounds in this frequency range (usually, from 500 to 2000 Hz) are cut out from the song.

The LALAL.AI extractor is hassle-free and effortless to use. To remove a vocal from a song, you simply need to open the website, upload your file, choose a stem you want to isolate (vocal in our case) and click to process. 

The tool does it quickly and precisely, so in a couple of minutes, you’ll get your previews. To get the full versions of split audio, you need to sign up with your email. 

You can also extract vocals and instrumentals from videos, not audios only. 

The tool supports all major audio and video formats, including MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, ACC, MP4, MKV, and AVI. 

Other AI Solutions To Separate a Voice From an Audio 

Spleeter neural network capabilities is another option you can leverage to separate voice and music. You can customize what exactly you want to get by splitting the audio file into two, four or five tracks. Anyone can use the Spleeter library – it is publicly available on GitHub. 

The big drawback is that some technical skills are required to get the neural network from the repository. For example, knowing how to use Python and TensorFlow to work with neural networks and the command line won’t hurt. 

Fortunately for regular users, enthusiasts have made web versions and a PC application that allow you to use Spleeter without any special knowledge.

Need Music Without Vocals? Look for Original Backtracks

Using the audio extractor LALAL.AI or its equivalents is not the only way to remove a voice from a song. There are many alternative ways to do the same. 

For instance, you can find backtracks on YouTube and download MP3s from there with solutions like 4K YouTube to MP3 or similar tools. Some backtracks can be stored on SoundCloud, Flickr, Facebook, Dailymotion, and alike.
