Actually the vocal eliminator machine compares left to right and puts
them out of polarity and then merges them into mono, that cancels
anything that is directly dead center, which is usually the lead vocals.
Often keyboards also. It then plays the mono track out both stereo
sides. I was able to accomplish the same by wiring a stereo phono
cartridge with one channel out of sync with the other and then running
it into a mono channel on a mixer.
This probably do-able via software but I have never tried it.
