How do I isolate vocals in Live 9?

I heard in Live 9 it would be a lot easier to isolate vocals, so how do you do it?

 

Example - you have an old song you want a vocal loop from, but can't seem to get rid of the frequencies in the background music even after using EQs.

 

Cheers in advance

    The best way is to get the instrumental and flip phase so that everything but the vocals are chanceld out.

    Okay there is no magic in this... Sometimes you need a bit luck too...

    Panning: In some tracks there is some weigd panning. the the vocals are often in the center you could chancel out the left or right side information. Best way is to work with phase chancelation. apply this with other techniques like eq in ms-mode and experiment until it sounds the best you can. 

     

    Alternatively and if youre a lazy guy like me you can use this one: http://www.quikquak.com/Prod_MashTactic.html

     

    Hope it helps. Have fun.

    This is the coolest thing that's ever happened to me. My headphones broke a bit and frayed just a smidgeon around the connector. Now pretty much all the tracks I listen to through said headphones, you can hear all the instruments and just the slightest ever barely audible trace of vocals. D:

     

    -this answer is completely irrelevant to your problem.

    -maybe it isn't, try breaking your head phones then transpose by ear? :P
