Karaoke is a fun and popular activity that allows people to sing along to their favorite songs. However, not all songs have a karaoke version available, so sometimes you might want to create your own karaoke track from a song that you like.

In this post, I will show you how to make a karaoke track with different tools, depending on your needs and preferences.

What Is a Karaoke Track?

A karaoke track is a song that has the vocals removed, leaving only the instrumental background. This allows you to sing over the music without any interference from the original singer. Karaoke tracks are also known as instrumental tracks, backing tracks, or minus-one tracks.

Let’s move on to the step-by-step guide on how to create karaoke tracks by removing vocals.

Method 1: How to Make a Karaoke Track Using Audacity

Using Audacity, a free and open-source audio editor that can help you remove the vocals from any song by splitting the stereo track into two mono tracks, inverting one of them, and then exporting the result as an MP3 file.

This method works by canceling out the vocals that are usually in the center of the stereo track.
