    Alright, so i'm trying to remove the vocals from the song Keehauled, by Alestorm, i will post a link to the youtube video later. i've tried removing the vocals from the song with audacity using all the ways that i could find, but all they did was remove some background music and a bit of the vocals. what i want to do is ocmpletely remove the vocals so that i can hear the amazing background tune that this song has. i'm willing to purchase any music editing software to do this, and money is not a real issue. any help is appreciated.

    "Money is not a real issue" is not something to be floated lightly when playing around in audio, video and image editing worlds- things rapidly end up in "years rent" range and only climb higher.

    That said even with silly money you are not likely to get much better than what you have now and seen as it is music you can not even spend hours and as you might on a video/image and go pixel by pixel. Your best bet would be to try to find the tracks it was mastered from (not things that tend to float around the internet unless they were on a guitar hero style game).

    There are a lot of graphical audio editors that you could use to do what you want ( It's not that easy, and you certainly have to pay).. Right now, I can't remember which are the good ones, but you can google about it, if you really want to take the time editing the audio waves..

    A exemple:

    If you want graphical fiddling you can actually do that in audacity but I have yet to meet anyone truly capable of doing a good job in it- visual fiddling when playing in pixels is definitely a skill and not one everybody has but figuring out where 40000 odd samples a second work out into a resulting waveform (on top of how it will ultimately be interpolated) is not something most can do.

    For science a MP3 appeared and looking at it in a wave editor it appears to have suffered the same brickwalling fate of most music nowadays which makes life somewhat harder as well (though a few runs at it with a karaoke filter and some other messing around saw a nice bit of dynamic range return).
