stripping songs

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by bassdementia, Nov 7, 2001.


  1. anyone know of any programs that will let you either take out, turn down or tune out vocals so that all you can hear is just the drums, bass, guitars, etc.. preferably a free program if available.

    thanks, fellow bassers

    Dammit, I thought this thread was going to be about songs to strip to.

  4. Hah, I though the same thing SD. I was gonna suggest "Slowride" by Foghat, or maybe "Private Dancer" by Tina Turner.

    To steer this back on topic and away from this worrying tangent... :eek:

    It's probably not what you're looking for bassdementia, but there is one thing that might just help. When mixing in stereo, certain tracks (i.e. bass track, vocal track, guitar track) are often "panned" so that they're louder in one speaker than the other. It's quite common practise, and it means that by isolating one speaker you can often hear a song with certain parts stripped away.

    To do this, either try changing the panning on your stereo or whatever you're using (if it has it), or disconnecting one of the speakers. As I say, it might not be what you're looking for, especially since vocals are often kept at equal volume in both speakers, but it might just come in handy.

    I walked on some wild sides, but not as a stripper. Most men pay to see strippers. If I had stripped, they would have insisted I pay THEM!!! :D :D
