I am doing a character animation using a lip sync software. The problem is that the characters lips move in time to every thing during the song like the guitars and the drums..I was told I could fix this by isolating the voice.
So how do I remove the music and keep the voice. Now the voice does NOT have to be perfect at all the sound isnt important as I will add the original song with music later..I just need the music removed and keep the voice..kinda a reverse karaoke.
there are some presets to try and some values to change for yourself.
What you are trying is like the attempt to get the white off of snow -- you generally ruin the snow in the process.
The problem is that the human voice generally fits into a frequency range of 85 HZ to 3500 Hz when you consider fundamental and harmonics. There is also a whole lot of music that fits into that same range. Thus to remove most of the music would mean removing most of the voice as well.
Here is a work around. Who says you have to use the song to drive the characters mouth? Sing the song Acapella into a recording then run two audio files, the Acapella file to drive the mouth movement and the full mix for the hearer.
