alright i hope all of you understand the question. i have just started playing drums. and i was wondering if there's any software out there that can make each instrument into seperate tracks. in other words, if i just wanted to hear the drums or the vocals, can any software do that?

Are you talking about making your own multi-track recordings or taking drums out of existing recordings?

You can't just isolate an instrument from an existing recording on a CD or whatever.

Can't do it. There are programs that remove certain pitches and frequencies, but it won't completely remove a certain instrument. You're best bet is to listen to the song you are trying to learn, then find the drum patterns online, similar to guitar tabs, and learn to play that way.

if you are recording the tracks yourself.... then you can do seperate for each instrument in programs like cool edit pro... but once everything's mixed down, you can't really take out the playing of a certain instrument from an audio track...

Although it may seem sooooooo right to be here, software queries strictly belong in the Tech Talk forum. So....

.... moving thread.
