Isolating a vocal has never been easier than with Music Rebalance in RX. Music Rebalance is a revolutionary source separation tool that allows you to shift and isolate mix elements like vocals, bass and percussion—all from a single mono or stereo file. For example, now you can isolate a vocal from a pop song and then reintroduce that vocal into a whole new environment for a remix. 

How to isolate a vocal

To get started isolating vocals, open up Music Rebalance in RX 7 and turn down the Other, Percussion, and Bass sliders, leaving the Voice slider at its default of zero. Choose your separation algorithm, then adjust your sensitivity meter to the left to more strictly define the sum vocals from the rest of the file. When you’re ready, press Render.

Now you can export the file and prepare it for a remix in an entirely new genre environment thanks to Music Rebalance.
