Removing Dubbed Audio

I am not sure if can be done but I have a old home movie I made on VHS in the 80s. Back then I added sound to it, dubbed it with the dubb feature but it was always to loud and made it hard to hear the talking. I was screwed back then but now I wonder if there is software that I use to remove the dubbed part? The music that I added?
Any help?

That's pretty difficult to do. You could perhaps attenuate the non-vocal frequencies or amplify the vocal frequencies to make the talking easier to hear though.

Depends on how you added it. If you used the "Audio Dub" feature of most VHS recorders back then, it put the new audio on the "normal" track (Non Hifi) of the tape. You can select the audio on most HiFi VHS machines and it's usually "Normal", HiFi, or Mix. Just select the HiFi one, instead of Mix or Normal, and you should hear the original soundtrack.

Feel free to PM me or email me for more info. I used to do video editing back then...
