I’m very new to music production, but I do know a bit about audio. Anyway, so I noticed that many acapella tracks are terrible quality. One thing I see a lot is versions of the same track at different bit rates, but when I check the spectrogram, they’re clearly bad transcodes.
So I was wondering, say I have a crappy compressed acapella track, along with the normal track as a perfect FLAC, is it possible to use the acapella inverted to remove the vocals from the original track as much as possible, then invert what’s left and add it back to the original track, getting a better quality acapella track in the end? Is this nonsense or is it common practice?December 6, 2016 at 12:56 pm #705601
It isn’t common practice to make a instrumental using the vocals and the original song because it rarely works for people. If you can find this CD (https://www.discogs.com/Aaliyah-Are-You … ase/346060) You can invert the acapella over the original version and see for yourself that it is possible, but the vocals have to match the original perfectly.
It’s not worth wasting too much time trying to make the instrumental using crappy vocals because the vocals have to be very good quality to begin with.September 26, 2017 at 1:19 am #705942
Doesn’t sound like it will work. If you start with crap, you’ll end with crap
