Post subject:  Reducing vocals in mono songs using Goldwave

Using the shareware program Goldwave (don't ask for serial key's, cracks or warez) it *is* possible to reduce instruments or vocals down to about 20% from a mono recording! Here's how. Reducing vocals from a Stereo recording can be achieved by cutting the centre pane, which is common knowlegde so covering it would be redundant.

1. Download Goldwave from the official site:

2. Select the instrumentals (or whatever you want to be the predominant part of the song you want to keep)

3. Copy it to clipboard

4. Mono Mix the song (if it isn't already mono)

5. Select either the left or right channel

6. Drop down the Effect toolbar

7. Go to the Filter section

8. Select Noise Reduction

9. Set the filter preset to Clipboard noise print

10. Set Scale% from 60-100 for best results; you should only hear the vocals now

11. Click OK

12. From the Effect toolbar, go to Stereo

13. From Stereo, go to Reduce Vocals

14. Fiddle with some settings until you can find the setting appropriate for the song.

(Note: you may have adjust the volume of the selected channel to hear the best results.)
