Vocal Reducer has the purpose of reducing the vocals of songs in the attempt to create instrumental audio tracks. It's a nifty tool when it comes to karaoke nights, for instance.
The application comes bundled with some pretty intuitive settings that should be easy enough to figure out even by less experienced users.
The installation procedure is quick and does not need special input from the user. Once it is done, you can check out the comfortable interface, where you can import a track using the file browser only, since the drag-and-drop method is not supported.
As far as adjustments are concerned, you can tweak the levels for voice attenuation, gain and cuttoff frequency. Unfortunately, you cannot do this in real-time mode, but you are provided with an undo function for retracing steps to try something else.
In addition, you can play the song within the main application frame (full, from a particular point, or selection). The resampled track can be saved to MP3, WAV, OGG or WMA format. There are no other notable options available through the program.
Vocal Reducer is not a concern to the computer's overall performance, since it runs on a very low amount of CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and delivers good results. Keep in mind that the tool cannot fully remove the vocals while maintaining the same audio quality. All in all, Vocal Reducer comes in handy to all users who want to strip the vocals off their favorite musical pieces.
