    your best bet is to look round the net for accapela`s (vocals with no beats) If you cant find any free ones try http://www.ebay.co.uk/ and search for there. My mate got three disks full for £25
    Hope this helps :kermit:

    Yeh like Re-Form said u can get hold of basicly any acapella. I have over 1000

    One of the best things to do is make your own acapella if u wanna use something a bit rarer. For example i think its hard to find NWA acapellas as i tried this once.

    You need to use somthing like soundforge. Get the whole song and the instrumental both in a high quality format. Mp3 wont really do if u want a good quality acapella.

    open up the main song and instrumental in soundforge or your wave editor and line them up perfect. You then invert the instrumental into the main song leaving the vocals.

    It works well 90% of the time i do it but u can get bad results if the music u start with is a bit shoddy.

    If you want more details just ask mate......

    the old phase cancelation method.... you can also copy & paste parts from the same song.... ie a chorus with no vocals onto a chorus with vocals...

    The main thing that's gonna fuck it up is the mastering, if you could find an unmastered copy of the track the results would *theoretically* be perfect...

    chances are zilch of that though
