There is no software that will remove all of the vocal without effecting the overall music.  Any vocal remover will remove anything in the center such as vocal, and bass.

Note: In this tutorial I use MP3 song.  For your own song, you have to use wave and save as wave for best quality.

1.    Open Cool Edit Pro , then click

2.    Select Lost in love.mp3 from How to Remove Vocal\CoolEditPro2 folder, then click

4.    The Lost in love.mp3 is loaded in the project window.

4.    Click Effects/Amplitude/Channel Mixer...

5.    Select Vocal Cut from Presets.  Click to listen.  The default setting is good enough, you don't have to adjust anything.

6.    Select Bypass if you want to listen to the original sound.

If everything OK, then click

7.    Click Save As icon,

8.    Type in Lost in love without vocal, then click

Now the Lost in love without vocal.mp3 is loaded in the project window.

9.    If you click or press SPACE bar to play, you will notice there is no bass. So we will make the bass only version. Click to open Lost in love.mp3 again

10.    Select Lost in love.mp3

Now you see both of the music files are in the project window.

11.    Click Effects/Filters/FFT Filter...
