How to Convert Music to an Instrumental: A Step-By-Step Guide. You may have a great song, but what if you want to create an instrumental version?


Instrumentals are pieces of music that are typically written without lyrics or singing. They can be performed by a solo artist or a band, and are often used as background music in films, television shows, and video games. Many popular songs have been translated into instrumentals, and there are various ways to do this. You can either purchase an instrumental version of a song from a music store, or you can use software to convert the song yourself.

What You Need

In order to convert music to an instrumental, you will need a few things.First, you will need a computer with an internet connection. You will also need a software program that can convert audio files into instrumental files. Finally, you will need the song that you want to convert.

How to Convert Music to an Instrumental

Converting music to an instrumental can be a great way to create new versions of your favorite songs. You can use online tools or audio editing software to remove the vocals from songs and create instrumental versions. This can be useful for making karaoke tracks, creating new remixes, or just enjoy listening to your favorite songs without the vocals. Let’s get started.

Method 1: Find the acapella version

One way to turn a song into an instrumental track is to find the acapella version of that song. An acapella is a track where the lead vocal has been removed, and only the background vocals and instrumentals remain. These tracks can be difficult to find, but they do exist for many popular songs. Once you have found the acapella track, you can then add it to your own music to create an instrumental version.

There are a few ways to find acapella tracks. One way is to search for “acapella versions of [song name]” on a search engine like Google. This will often bring up links to websites where you can download the track. Another way is to look for fanmade acapeella tracks on websites like YouTube. These tracks are usually made by fans of the original song who have taken the time to remove the lead vocal themselves.

Once you have found an acapella track, you can then add it to your own music using audio editing software like Audacity or GarageBand. Simply import the acapella track and your own music into the software, line up the two tracks so they start at the same time, and then export your new instrumental track!

Method 2: Use a YouTube to MP3 Converter

There are a few different ways that you can go about converting your music to an instrumental. One way is to use a YouTube to MP3 converter. This is a website that allows you to enter in the URL of a YouTube video and then download the audio from the video as an MP3 file.

To use this method, simply find a YouTube video of the song that you want to convert to an instrumental. Once you have found the video, copy the URL from the address bar at the top of your browser and paste it into the input box on the YouTube to MP3 converter website. From there, you will be able to download the MP3 file of the song and save it to your computer.

How to Make an Instrumental

In this article we will be discussing how to convert music to an instrumental. This can be a great way to create your own backing tracks, or to create karaoke tracks. We will be using Audacity to do this, which is a free and open source audio editor.

Method 1: Use a Software Instrument

1) Get a software instrument. If you want to make an instrumental of a song, you’ll need to find software that can help you do that. Some popular software includes Logic Pro, Garage Band, and Ableton. You can find these online or in music stores.

2) Find the song that you want to make an instrumental of. Once you have your software, you’ll need to find the song that you want to convert into an instrumental. You can find songs on YouTube, SoundCloud, and other music websites.

3) Import the song into your software. Once you’ve found the song, you’ll need to import it into your software so that you can work with it. To do this, open your software and look for the “import” button. Once you’ve found it, click on it and select the song that you want to import.

4) Isolate the vocals. The next step is to isolate the vocals from the rest of the song. To do this, look for a “vocal isolation” button in your software. Once you’ve found it, click on it and select the portion of the song that contains the vocals.

5) Remove the vocals from the selection. Now that you’ve isolated the vocals, you need to remove them from the selection so that only instrumental parts are left behind. To do this, look for a “remove vocals” button in your software and click on it.

6) Export your instrumental version of the song. The last step is to export your instrumental so that you can share it with others or use it yourself. To do this, look for an “export” button in your software and click on it. Choose where you want to export your file and give it a name.

Method 2: Use a MIDI Controller

Assuming you have a basic understanding of music theory, and can read sheet music or tabs, you can use a MIDI controller to create an instrumental version of any song.

Here’s what you’ll need:

-A MIDI controller
-A computer with a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
-An understanding of how to use a DAW
-The sheet music or tabs for the song you want to convert

Once you have all of the above, you’re ready to get started. Here’s a brief overview of how to do it:

1. Load the song into your DAW. If you’re using sheet music, you may need to transcribe it into MIDI notes first.
2. Using your MIDI controller, play through the song and record your performance.
3. Once you’ve recorded your performance, edit it as needed to clean it up and make any necessary corrections.
4. Export your performance as an audio file and enjoy your new instrumental version of the song!


There you have it! These are three methods you can use to create an instrumental version of any song. Each method has its own set of pros and cons, so be sure to choose the one that best suits your needs. With a little bit of patience and practice, you’ll be able to create beautiful instrumental tracks in no time at all.
