    I don't know if there is a program that can only take the vocals from mp3's and wav's. Is there any software that can only keep the vocals and silent the music?

    That's right - if you're trying to hear the vocals a little better (to make them out, etc.), you might try to mess with 30 band equalization. But to remove the music entirely; nope.

    remove the extreme frequences and boost the mids...
    that's what I usually do If I am trying to make out a vocal line.

    OR

    some Mastering packages(most actual;ly) will alow you to do things to check for phase cancellation etc.....this can sometimes yeild some interesting results.....IE..T-Racks...hit the Diff button and then audition the track.

    The cancellation theory is actually pretty good, but you only get background vocals and parts that're in stereo..

    One way to try this manually is like so:
    Take a stereo wav file in a wav editor (CEP, wavelab, Sound Forge, etc.)-
    Highlight the RIGHT side of the stereo file..
    Choose INVERT from one of the tool menus..
    Copy the inverted right side of your stereo file..
    MIX the copied right side over the LEFT side of the stereo file-
    Then, AFTER you mix the 2 sides, copy the left side of the track to a new file.. Yes, it'll be mono, but you'll hear some things that you would normally NOT have to work with..
    About 90% of the time, you cancel out BEATs and LEAD VOCALs.. The rest will remain..

    I know it's confusing, but believe me, it works.
