Vocal Remover F.A.Q.

How does PhonicMind's vocal remover work?

All methods used up until now where based on phase differences of stereo track and some frequencies custom selection. Some academics even tried to figure out repeating patterns in the song and this way separate vocals, as vocals usually does not have repeating pattern. None of these methods really worked well enough.

PhonicMind's vocal remover opens a door to the new era of sources separation.
PhonicMind's vocal remover uses deep neural networks to do vocal elimination.

We can proudly say, that our artificial intelligence understands music. We are not sure if it can feel it, but it clearly understands it and basically knows what to eliminate and what to leave. No other vocal remover can compare to it in terms of separation quality. We are also continuously pushing it's capabilities up to the new levels on daily basis. So it's just getting better and better over time.


How to make karaoke online?

From now on you no longer need to wonder on how to extract vocals from a song. You no longer need to fiddle around with Audacity or other audio editing tools trying to reach impossible. Separating vocals from full song was always a tricky business even by using greatest audio editing tools. It's a tricky business not only for daily users but even for audio professionals. From now on - it's easy and effective. Simply upload your .mp3 file and we do the conversion online within the minutes by using our state of the art sophisticated artificial intelligence. Then you can download both of the tracks for your fun or project. Whatever it is - pop, folk, house, electro, rap, rnb, - you name it. Whatever language it is in. It all works equally well.


What can I do with PhonicMind's vocal remover output files

It's totally up to you what you do with those files. Most of the times people just want to make a karaoke version of their favorite song so that they could sing or play the main melody of a song with full music background. A lot of the times people do these conversions to sing a song in a different language. That is very fun!
Eliminated vocals are usually used by music professionals to create outstanding remixes, by re-sampling some older song and giving it a new life. That is very beautiful! If you are one of those guys, please share your work with us, we would love to see what you are able to achieve with this!
If you are using or willing to use it in some other way, please share your thoughts with us, so that we could maybe make our vocal remover better suited for your needs.


What are the requirements on file that I have to upload?

Our vocal remover accepts all major audio file formats like MP3, AAC, WMA, FLAC, ALAC and many others. The better quality audio file you have, the better end result will be. We recommend using CD quality audio files for best results. Your song file should be less than 100Mb in size and shorter than 9 minutes.
If you have your song in WAV, PCM, AIFF or any other uncompressed format, please use some online converter, Audacity, Cool editor, Adobe Auditio or any other tool to make *.mp3 file.
If you do not have any audio file of your favorite song at all and you know your song is available on youtube.com - use some youtube to mp3 converter to get one.

Attention! You might not get the best results out of our vocal remover if you use poor quality audio files.


Do you have some examples?

Yes we do have examples - please find them on our How it works page.


Is there a downloadable PC application that I can purchase?

No, there is no downlodable application.
All of this work is being done with deep neural network which is running on an expensive GPU cluster that is organized in a very specific way.
In other words - regular PC does not have enough resource capacity to perform this, that's why there is no downloadable PC application and we do not see that it could become available in a near future.


How about some subscription based pricing model?

We are very glad that we are constantly getting this question, but it is not possible at least at this moment in time.
Every conversion has very high computational costs associated with it, therefore if we would allow people to do unlimited number of conversions over some subscription period, it would just over-flood our GPU cluster or even burn it out. We are unable to offer this at least now.
Although we think it's likely that we might offer this one day, as our AI evolves enough and GPU servers get's cheaper over time.


How many free preview files is there available per user?

We allow 20 preview files per user/session and we add 20 preview files per each credit purchased. So for example if you exhausted all of your free previews and purchase "Basic bundle", which includes 5 conversions, that will add 100 free previews on to your account as well.


Why is this not free?

Silly, but this is the most popular question that we get. Often people say - "I love your service, but I do not have money or a job to pay".
Well, let's make it clear - we have borrowed a ton of money and invested all of it in to expensive hardware and even more expensive labor to make this service available only because you people needed it. So you do not have money... It most probably means that you have 0 money. Because of this work that we have done now we also do not have money. Not only that. In fact we have a huge debt that we need to pay off. So we have minus money in our account. In other words you are a rich man as you have $0 and we have -$957.549. So since you have $957.549 more than we have and you agree that this service is amazing, why won't you share just a little bit to help us get out of our poor life?


Is there money back guarantee?

Sorry, but no. Every conversion has high computational costs associated with the job. Please review our examples and perform tests before you make any purchase to get familiar with what kind of result you might expect. Usually conversion results are the same or even better quality than provided examples.
