Besides giving you the chills or simply helping you relax after a long day's work, music also serves as a neat entertainment method, and you surely noticed how everyone starts to sing along when a good song pops on the radio or in the middle of a party. Karaoke is the method in question, playing just the instruments of popular songs, and you can use applications like Vogone in order to remove vocals from virtually any song.
Guided steps make the process easy
It might seem like a difficult technique, since it's only a bunch of notes playing at different frequencies. However, a song is built on several audio layers, with the voice usually representing the middle, and instruments occupying left and right channels.
The application aims to make the whole process easier and takes you through a series of thoroughly detailed steps, at the end of which you get the clean version of the target file, without the voice layer, but keeping the quality as close to the original as possible.
File support and initial steps
File support is decent, with the possibility to load WAV, WMA, MP3, CDA, BIN, KMA, and a few more karaoke files. Only one item can be processed at a time, but this is not a disadvantage, because you intervention is required for a flawless result.
With the song ready for editing, you must decide on a section of the song that has voice in it, with the rest being handled by the application. Selecting the loop area takes you to the first editing phase, which is to minimize the high and low voice frequencies by adjusting dedicated sliders. Bass, treble and volume can also be changed so you can clearly hear and comprehend every minor change.
Review and export options
Before getting to save the new file, all controls are put at your disposal to add finishing touches. Up to four different preset configurations can be applied in case you didn't quite get it right. You can also revisit each step to give it another shot.
Needless to say that the final step is configuring the output type. Three formats are up for display, each with its own stereo attributes, with some even dedicated to karaoke. In this regard, it's sad to see there's no built-in tool to also add and export lyrics.
All in all, we all listen to music for different purposes. Audio editing can even be called a passion or hobby, given the diversity of dedicated tools, with Vogone being amongst the essentials, and not just for building songs for karaoke sessions. Although the general technique seems difficult, the application makes sure all goes smooth and quick, managing to provide the result you are looking for.
