What's New in Version 1.6
Updated to work with iPhone 5 and iOS 7
I just want to tell everybody that there is no app that will completely remove the vocals in a song. It removes the "main melody" if you will, but keeps the background vocals. If you were to remove the background vocals the song would sound distorted. Overall, great app! Keep it up Acoustica 😃
Not Horrible Not Great
I see the premise. It uses and automated adjustment of highs and lows from the songs to TRY and remove the vocals. I'd guess it's the same adjustment for each song, which is why it doesn't work for all songs.
It worked (and by worked, I mean any reduction in vocals, even if minimal) on about 50% of the songs I tried out. And 90% of those had reduction in the instrumental as well, which defeats the purpose of the app.
If you're truly trying to REMOVE vocals, you're better off finding a track's full MIDI file, which can let you DELETE vocals (if they have been parted out).
Adjust your 'algorithm' to be song specific and the app might provide better results.
This is the best karaoke app ever. Usually you can't even make out the music but this is clear and amazing. If your not sure about getting it I recommend you do because you will not regret it!
