LargeIconMy second Chrome plug-in is now available on the Chrome web store!

Music these days is produced in stereo, i.e. it has left and right channels, produced with left and right headphones. This allows producers to pan instruments from one side to the other.

In a lot of modern music the vocals are dead centre. Doing some simple maths, you can remove any instruments which are dead centre. That’s what this plug-in does. If the vocals are panned dead centre, then they will be removed!

For all the details please see the Karaoke Mode for YouTube™ page.

Known bugs/plans going forward

  • Create a sample playlist of songs that work well
  • Does not work with Flash videos such as VEVO
  • Build in lyrics as well?
  • Improve the vocal filter
