I was looking online for some AI solutions, but I couldn't find anything, would the collective knowledge of HN have an answer to this question?
Commercial solutions are out there, but imo/e they're not always that great and the problem is of prime interest for researchers both in industry and academia.
Get in touch and I'll give it a shot, but no promises.
And probably when you do that you might want to type it out as
yourname at example com
Rather than as “email@example.com”.
Still, even if you write it that way there are probably some scrapers out there that will recognize it as an email and include it in some list.
You could try to be a bit cryptic like some do though. If for example the local-part of your email address is the same as your HN username, and you are using GMail, you could write something like:
“You can reach me on GMail. My username there is the same as the one I use on HN.”
Just don’t be too cryptic, or you won’t just ensure that scrapers can’t parse it — even people legitimately wanting to get in touch could be unable to understand what your address actually is :P
Alternatively, instead of stating your email address in any form you could put a link to your profile on some other platform where people can reach you.
Turned out I had accidentally caused wires to come loose in the trunk, leaving the speakers wired in series, which caused the stereo channel cancelation effect.
So recording a version with a separate vocal track is 100% doable for any song.
However, to actually use it in Karaoke, it's no longer just a cover; even though it's just the words that are shown along with it, it's part of a larger work, so you need the same sort of license you would need for using it in e.g. a TV ad, and that needs to be negotiated with the copyright owner.
For more details google "mechanical license" and "synchronization license"; the first is the "I want to record a cover" and the second is what you would need for using in karaoke.
in my DJ days, you could just write a record label and ask for instrumental or vocal only demo tracks to perform mixes (this is how dj's became popular in the NYC scene). 80% of the time its a yes, and 90% of those vocal tracks were "audiomarked" copies so you could only make demos (but didn't stop people from using the non-watermarked part for a 15 second clip in their DJ mix.
anyway, what i'm saying is that your method works for basic recordings. as you move up the production food chain you need to become more creative in your methods
It's like asking to recover layers from a PNG/JPG File.
