OS X :: Any Software To Extract Instrumental From Song?
Sep 26, 2010
Im wondering if there is any software that extracts the instrumental/beat from any song (mpeg/aac or mp3) and leaves the lyrics behind. Could use this if i plan on writing my own lyrics over the same beats.
i bought a song on itunes the other day and i realized that only the beginning half of the song will play and then it will stop for the other half and no sound will be coming out but it will still be playiny. how do i get a refund or how can i redownload the song on itunes?
I have song compilation albums in itunes. I prefer to seach by Artist, not album. Compilation albums often assign a different artist for each song. I don't like this, as I end up with thousands of artists, each with only one song! Here's an example:
I copy "Classical Chillout" compilation album to itunes. 30 songs show up, each with their own (new) artist name, song name, and all within the album "Classical Chillout.
Instead of having:
SONG Adagio for Strings
ARTIST Samuel Barber
ALBUM Classical Chillout
I want to batch rename all songs so that the Album name becomes the Artist and each "Artist" name is inserted into the "Song" name
I know you can use iTunes dj to "play song next" or whatever but I don't like iTunes DJ for the fact that you don't have 100% control over what songs are playing if you want to pinpoint certain songs, etc..
Is there any way that I can line up a song to play after the current song without interrupting the current song and immediately playing the song I want next?
I purchased a song on itunes but only half the song downloaded. When I go to quick links and select purchase, I see the song as purchased but it wont download. It is behaving like a song you would listen to on itunes. It has the arrow with blue back round still. What can I do to get my song completely downloaded.
This is SO frustrating.¬† I bring in my new iMac for the techs to move my iTunes over, I bring it home and have not been able to listen to one song.¬† I double click on it and it says "Cannot find file, locate?"¬† I say yes, it brings me to the album artwork. I am not at all comfortable yet with the iMac environment so need step by step instructions!¬†
I cannot play a song on itunes by double clicking the song. I can only play a song by fast forwarding or fast backing from the original song played to the next song I want to play. I can then hit play and the song will play. what is my problem other than general ineptitude?
I have a decent size music library(40+gig) on my late MB and i find that iTunes is slow to load when I open it and sometimes when im clicking around songs there is a half second pause before the song is highlighted and then starts to play. Since the program is pulling the info off the HD im thinking that if i got a higher capacity 7200 rpm drive that this would help (currently my stock 150gig only has 50gigs left) with this stutter or would upgrading to 4gig ram?
When selecting a song to play from iTunes library, I continually get an error message indicating the original file could not be found. Then asks, would you like to locate it?I'm not even able to play the songs I purchased due to this error message.
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iTunes Error Message
I have downloaded a song and when I go to play it...it bounces off of the song and will not play.¬† I have iTunes 10.6.1......Apple charged me for the song already.¬† I went to Support but could not find a solution specific to my issue.¬†I have downloaded over 2500 songs and this has not happened before.¬† This song was one of nine other songs I downloaded that evening...all others came through successfully.
I'm trying to get used to Mac because I want to write some novels with Scrivener, but I'm mainly a Linux guy. I made a .7za passworded archive and threw it on Dropbox, but now I can't for the life of me extract it on a MacBook running Leopard. I've tried 7zX and Keka, but both of them are determined to create either a .7z or .zip archive rather than extract the .7za. What am I not getting here?
I tried to get 7zip, but all the links I find to a Mac version are broken.
I have a few .rm files (RealAudio 10 AAC), and have done a "container swap" so that the AAC is now in a QuickTime container, and is therefore readable by iTunes etc. The problem is that my iPod won't read these QuickTime files. How can I extract the AAC data into an .m4a file that an iPod can play? I have QT Pro.
Right click multiple zip files on Windows Explorer and there you have a handy "Extract to" option where you can select to extract all the files to a single folder. How to do the same thing on the mac? Not using terminal, not opening each file and doing the extraction, not opening it with stuffit where it extracts to a folder automatically, i'd like to do the exact same thing that I can do on windows... which is extract X zip / rar files to a specific folder that I can choose, just by right-click.
Is it possible to extract a DVD to .mov without having to spend money? I use Handbrake, which is great; however, I would prefer to have my files as .mov instead of .mp4. Is there something out there like Handbrake that is free without catches? Are there other alternatives? ¬†
I know about software out there that does this, like quicktime pro and dvd ripper. I feel that there shouldn't be a reason to shell out more money for just converting files. We all know being a videographer isn't cheap.¬†
Since I need to bring my mini-tapes to a media transfer store to be made into DVDs, I thought I might be able to bring it to that same place or a rite aid or duane reade to be converted to .mov files instead of a DVD.¬†
I have a .zip archive on my server that I need to extract. However, I can't just extract on my Mac and then upload what it dumps out to the server - the file needs to be unarchived on the server. However, I'm not quite sure how to do this. I currently use Cyberduck as my FTP client, but I'm willing to use anything else that can extract this if Cyberduck cannot.
I have downloaded recently a file which contain an archives of files which has the extinon .r01 etc i downloaded win-rar for mac... unfortunatly its a command line file. how to use it. to extract those file. here is the site where i downloaded winRAR from.. [URL] Still new to MAC i don't want to mess up things
I have several video recordings (mostly in mp4 format), which I would like to parse the audio out of. Is it possible to do that? There aren't specific tracks I want, I just want the whole audio track from the video extracted. Any programs to do this? Better yet, freeware?
I recently generated an entire backup of my website for safety purposes. As usual I deleted something that I realized I need, so i am trying to open up this .tar.gz file that i downloaded from my webhost. However, the mac Archive Utility always says, "Unable to unarchive backup" I have tried to downloaded BetterZip for mac and do it that way and i still get the same error.
I would like to transfer my iTunes library to my phone to use as a secondary/backup iPod. The problem is that I have a lot of music, and iTunes organizes the music by putting music in separate folders via artist, and then more separate folders by album. This means there is no easy way to transfer all of my music over. I'd have to manually click on every folder, and copy songs one by one, which would take a super long time.
Is there a way to like select my iTunes Music folder and be able to get all of my music?
