Is it possible to do the inversion with Logic?

I'm looking for the same answer. I found http://www.acapellas4u.co.uk/topic60321.html?hilit=logic while searching, but that doesn't really answer this.

You said invert the instrumental and mix it with the original but what if you cant find the instrumental either? Is there a way to do this with FL Studio and if someone knows a good Youtube video that would be helpful too! Thanks :cheesy:

Cheers for this information, Tim. Starting out my first DIY Acapella with The Saturdays - 30 Days and using Audacity. The result is not perfect (cause I haven't got around to EQing it all) but it's a start. :cheesy:

When there is no instrumental version, how about generating an instrumental version of a track (by splitting it into mono channels and inverting one to subtract from the other) and using that to isolate the vocals from the original?

I have tried that method on various tracks, but I must say that the results sounds pretty muddy.
I would like to know how this guy has extracted vocals from Elvis' "Thats Alright Mama" . It is a very impressive work!
I have tried to contact him, unfortenately with no answer. He hasn't been active on youtube since 12th Feb '12...

Mm, I've been trying to isolate frequencies in songs and use noise reduction methods to clear out the sound, but it seems that inversion is the way to go now. But out of curiosity, how easy is it to get an instrumental version of a song? Easier than acapella? or no?

Instrumentals can easily be created with the karaoke filter in Audacity for example. The result may vary a lot! The filter remove sound from the center of the stereo space within the frequenzy span of your desire.
Sometimes vocals are not only centered, but also include stereo echo, reverb or other stereo fx as well as stereo panned choirs. Those vocals will remain within the mix.
Sometimes other centered sounds - such as drums - will be damaged. The best thing to do is to fill in your drums, of the cost that its not gonna be a 100% original instrumental.

However, i have sometimes been surpriced by how good the filter actually works!

Logical and simply method with the instrumental, but we must have the instrumental. Simply solution but need time.

found this really awesome method with Ableton Live using the EQ8 to simply drop out the left and right channels - basically immediately inverses the phases.
not sure if anyone has posted this yet... the thread is getting a little long.
