On a related note, there is a machine called IIRC a "vocal eliminator"
that lets you use (almost) any standard solo recording as a karaoke
disc. That is, by some magic, it filters out the singer and leaves the
accompaniment. This sounds non-trivial to me in a DSP sense, and I've
held off buying one for that reason. Do any of you folks know of
algorithms to do this? I've been assuming they just look at "location"
on a left-right continuum, "find" the vocalist, and punch as small a
hole as possible at that point.
