A great acapella can take your track to a new level. Better yet if it’s not a run-of-the-mill acapella that every producer across the planet have already put their hands on. PEEL makes it easy to isolate vocals from any recording and use them in your own project.
In this tutorial video, we take a look at using recordings from Tracklib to create an acapella that we’ll use in a house track.
Beatmakers, house producers, techno heads or anyone into electronic music production – great acapellas are the rare gems that can add a whole new dimension to your music. There are plenty of sample libraries and acapella collections available, but the problem is you end up using the same recordings as other producers.
So what do you do? You can go crate-digging through the dustiest heaps of vinyl at the back of your local thrift shop. Or do what we did in this video: use Tracklib.com’s immense collection of rare recordings and find a track with a vocal performance that you like. And then what? How do you get that vocal line into your music?
PEEL is a spectral processing isolator plugin that can help you extract the vocals from all types of recordings so you can create your own, unique acapellas. And it’s not hard to do either. Load up any stereo mix and PEEL’s easy-to-use interface shows you a graphical representation of the music playing with the stereo field from left to right and the frequency range from top to bottom. Simply drag a selection across the sound you want to isolate.
You can also use it in reverse, to mute a certain instrument from a mix. Or even do both – route the isolated audio out of the recording onto its own audio track for further processing. We have videos that shows this process in Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Reaper, Reason, FL Studio, Logic and others.
