Hi there. I was wondering about a week can we really separate an audio into 2 audio. I mean I want a voice of an actor for my character voice but the background music is really pathetics. Hate that thing. I hope someone more expireince in audio editing may have the solutions. Thanks Scirra

Audio files are like a food recipe. If you bake a cake, and then try to get all the egg out after it's cooked, it's not going to work.

If you can find an instrumental (song without vocals) track and an acapella (vocals only) track, you can play the two together while still having them as two seperate files. Or if you personally know the person who produced the recording, they could make an instrumental and acapella for you. But you can't just get an .mp3 with vocals and instrumental and try to separate the two, without both ending up as a horrible mess.

So you want a voice that sounds chipmunked, but is still at a normal pace?

That's called Pitch Shifting. You can use pitch correction software to do that like Autotune. I personally use a similar program called Melodyne. Or, if you're on a budget and don't need it to be too professional, you can easily use the "change pitch" setting in the free program Audacity.

Hope that helps.
