Is it possible to remove drums from a track in fl studio?

So...Is it possible to somehow remove the drums from a track using fl studio?`
I was going to remix a song, but the drums are in the way. And the track is instrumental, so no accapella!

Re: Is it possible to remove drums from a track in fl studio?

Probably not. There is such a wide range of frequencies that EQ stuff out will end up ruining everything else in the track. Like if the melody is in the high mids removing snare frequencies will probably destroy the melody. Maybe there are some instrumental snippets you can cut out to do you refix that have no drums or just percussion or something. Sometimes on older, no electronic tracks you can try isolating the left or right channel. I've gotten a few choice acapellas doing this.

Try contacting the label/producer about stems...label owners/producers are actual real people...the worst you'll get is a "no" or no response at all.

Maybe you could try replicating the drums then layering them phase inverted over the track. Probably won't work, but worth a try.

Damn, that's what i though.
Do you know of any other way to do a remix, if you don't have the stems?

And i got a feeling the record label won't answer if i try to contact them.

Beyond recreating the melody yourself. No. Unless you really zoom in on the wave form and try to find things to cut out.

A politely written email would take just a few minutes of your time. Besides, if you are doing a bootleg (remix w/o stems) you can't do much with it anyway.

Re: Is it possible to remove drums from a track in fl studio?

check out some vids on youtube for doing acapellas. DJVesper did a good series.

i tried it out once on a track to just try and get vocals off it and it worked out well. i mean you hear the drums faintly in the background but if you're just looking for vocals or something it may work. worth a try.

I might try sending them a mail. Now, how can i find out what record label it is? I've searched abit but can't manage to find it.
It's the track "piano tune" by Bar 9 i wanted to remix btw.

Right, no way man; found it.
I think.

It's on Beatport's website. Looks like it's Audio Phreaks.
