How do I separate the voice and beats of a song...
I dont think its possible but its worth a try...so are there any programs that would be able to separate the voice (or singing) from the actual musical beats of a mp3 or wav?

It's not going to do what you are looking for, but take a look at Audacity. It's free, it does stuff to audio, and it's fun to play with.

You can't really get acceptable audio quality when doing this, I do believe. And if the voices have weird stereo effects it's basically impossible to remove, afaik.

I concur. Most audio-processing tools remove vocals by merely subtracting the left channel with the right channel, hoping that the vocal is recorded at same intensity & phase on both channels.

When it is shifted on the soundstage, or has its L/R phase inverted (to make it sounds like it comes from inside your head), the vocals will still be there.

This question has been asked ad nauseam. The answer remains:  try to cut out the center channel if the vocals are there. (Extra boy is a free VST plug in to use in your preferred editor). There are not many other options, except the magic scissors of course .
