Tonebytes Intros GLS! Vocal Removal Software

ToneBytes has introduced GLS!, a free virtual effect plug-in that lets you remove vocals from songs.

It works on the principle of the central channel subtraction, where a singer’s voiÑ�e is usually located. The plug-in is also able to preserve bass and drums, which are often located in the center of the stereo space and would otherwise suffer.

According to Tonebytes:

GLS! well suited for music with a good stereo separation and a dry vocal, slightly worse for the wet vocal, and not suitable for the mono tracks. However wet vocals can also be a bit muted by narrowing the stereo before processing.

Do not expect magic. GLS! will remove not only the voice: some other musical instruments or sounds may also disappear or corrupt, and the song loses stereo. But in some cases the result is quite acceptable.

Pricing and Availability

GLS! is available now as a free VST effect for Windows.
