Problem with music maker and sound forge

Gary-Kargakos wrote on 2/24/2019, 4:14 PM

Two questions.

1.) Is it technologically possible to remove or isolate individual instruments from a MP3 audio file? If there is, does magix have any way of doing that?

2. In order to install sound forge 10.0, I am required to download Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0. After download is complete (blue bar reaches the end), a pop up says that the download was corrupted. What do I do?

Answer to question 1: No. There is no software of any kind that can unmix a mixed track. Think of your MP3 as a baked cake; there is no way to unbake it and retrieve the original ingredients.

Depending on how the individual instruments are mixed, especially where they sit in the stereo image, it may be possible to boost or decrease the level of one or more, but the software which can do this tends to be expensive, and it is not made by Magix.

So, how does one make a remix of another song? I am very curious.

One has to have access to the original, preferably multitrack recording. From that individual tracks/instruments/voices can be "isolated" and changed/removed etc. or "new" parts added, in order to create the remix.

@Gary-Kargakos

Further to what Jeff mentioned, "remix" usually means cutting up the song and reorganizing it in a different rhythmic sequence, mixed with loops or remix objects from other tracks, etc.

I suggest that you look up "remix" in the manual to see the various ways to do this.
