there are a few plugins (can't give any names though cuz i'm not sure) that'll take vocals outta most stuff (along with bass) it depends on what's in mono, basically it takes the mono track out....

Well, thats kinda true though I'll say now there is no known plug around just now that can truly take the vocals out, bass, or indeed anything else from a finished mix.

What there is, are plugs that APPEAR to take vocals out. What they actually do is take the middle of the stereo field out...i.e. yer average song has (in many cases) the vocals panned straight down the middle.

Most plugs just rip the middle bit right out the song i.e. these frequencies...the trouble with is is twofold. 1. Anything else panned dead centre is killed!! 2. if the vox AINT dead centre, they stay!!! can see its no perfect.

The only way to do it is at the mix stage...well properly anyway.

That said, there is a directx plug that removes vox, its no perfect but tis free and may do what ye need.

Good luck to ye

In addtion Adobe Audition 1.5 has Center Channel Extractor that works extremely well. It can also be adjusted to remove from other fields in stereo image, but center works best. It's one of the best at doing vocal removal I've come across.

Wavelab 4 has it. Its Called a Vocal Accentuator (sp?) However it does take away some of the other frequencies from other instruments. Pretty cool though
