How to Turn Music into an Instrumental: A Guide to Making Hip Hop Beats
If you want to make hip hop beats, then you need to know how to turn music into an instrumental. This guide will show you how to do just that, and help you make the best possible beats for your songs.


In order to create an instrumental version of a song, you’ll need to strip away the vocals from the original recording. This can be done with a few different techniques, depending on the quality of the original recording and the type of software you’re using. Once you’ve removed the vocals, you can then add your own instruments or adjust the existing ones to create a unique version of the song.

What You’ll Need

-An audio editing program like Adobe Audition, Audacity, or GarageBand
-A piece of music with vocals that you want to remove

The first step is to open your audio editing program and import the song that you want to instrumentalize. Once the song is imported, you’ll need to identify the parts of the song where the vocals are located. This can be a bit tricky, but a good rule of thumb is to look for the section of the song where the music is most prominent and the vocals are most subdued.

Once you’ve identified the section of the song with the vocals, you’ll need to select that portion and delete it. This can be done by using the “cut” or “delete” function in your audio editing program. Once you’ve deleted the section with the vocals, you should be left with just an instrumental version of the song!


Here are the basic steps to follow when you want to turn a song into an instrumental:

1. Choose the song you want to make into an instrumental. Consider the genre of music, the feel of the song, and how difficult it would be to strip down to its essentials.

2. Find a version of the song without vocals. You can search for karaoke versions online, or isolated tracks from live performances.

3. If you can’t find an existing instrumental version, you’ll need to create one yourself. Use audio editing software to remove the vocals from the track. This can be a difficult and time-consuming process, so be prepared to put in some work.

4. Once you have your instrumental track, it’s time to get creative! Add your own flourishes and embellishments to make the track your own. You can also use this opportunity to change the tempo or key of the song, giving it a new feel altogether.

5. When you’re happy with your instrumental track, save it and share it with the world!


By following the steps above, you can turn any song into an instrumental track that you can use for your own personal enjoyment or for any number of other purposes. All you need is a little bit of time and patience and you’ll be well on your way to creating some great music.
