I have a very simple song which has only a vocal and a piano sound. I want to remove the piano sound, and indeed, only get the vocal. According to this link: How to Isolate Vocals in Audacity, there is an option in Audacity for this matter. But actually, it is just a noise reduction, and it cannot remove the piano sound as I expected. Considering that the song is very simple and there are no instruments except a piano in this song, is there a software which can remove the piano sound or at least reduce the piano volume as much as possible?

  • On what OS should the software run, and how much would you be willing to invest if it comes to paid software?

Really, the only app that comes anywhere close [if the phase flip trick doesn't work, which it usually doesn't] is Izotope's Music Rebalance

It is only available as part of a larger package & starts at $399

Even at that price it isn't perfect. It works on some sources better than others. A demo of the full RX7 suite is available, so you can at least try it before committing.
