Re: removing guitar and vocals from tracks
This sort of thing relies on vocals and leads being mixed dead center, with rhythm and drums being mixed a bit to one side.
You can do it yourself in any audio editor:
1. Split the source audio L/R into 2 tracks
2. Reverse the phase on one track
3. Re-combine into one track
This way, anything mixed center will be on both the left and right track, and will cancel itself out when you flip the phase. Anything mixed left or right of center will not be affected.
It doesn't always work, and sometimes it sounds weird, but it's worth trying!
