    I've been wondering how to remove any singing or voice, to make a song instrumental. I would also like to remove guitar from a song.

    there is really no GOOD way of doing it but MOST OF THE TIME the vocal track is centered, so wat most :voice remover" plugins or apps do is remove the center pan where most of the vocals are. only works good on some songs though, and i doubt youll be able to remove the guitar, unless you find the track as seperate parts online which is highly unlikely. bands like metallica and van halen have their seperate tracks online (bass only, vocals only, instrumental) only becuase they were ripped from the guitar hero game...just gonna say.

    Actually it is possible to take out voices or instruments. It does take specialised software to filter them out though, and it's usually not 100%. Look up audial forensics sometime.

    There's also attempts to remove vocals by removing the range of frequencies in a human voice, but it doesn't work if the voice has been synthesized, and if there's instruments playing in the same range they'll be removed too.

    Vocals aren't a separate track in the versions that customers get, so there's no easy way a lot of the time.

    So Hit 'n' Mix won't work then?

    Slightly off-topic but look what they did with BBC news theme, hilarious!
