    Do to the overwhelming pit of s*** DIY acapellas I have decided to start a blog which will only feature high quality studio acapellas. I have at least a couple hundred to post, so be patient! Every post will be posted by me, so if you like the quality of one download you can bet the rest will be of the same quality. You guys can check it out here:

    well ok, fine, I didn't experience the jungle age of dnb, I've never been to a concert apart from art vs science, I like pendulum, and i bedroom produce.

    btw, sweet sig tunes.

    i like the blog and the quality, but i am not too fancy about the track selection: david guetta and eminem?

    what about some ODB or Biggie pellas, that would be nice.

    anyway keep up the good work!

    Most of the acapellas in circulation are crap commercial music that no one wants to remix. Quality of sound is no good if the quality of song it came from is utter shite.

    I have thousands of acapella that I have collected over long time. Some from vinyl, and some from CD/studio. Sometimes acapellas are only available on DJ only promos that are limited too, so are even harder to obtain.

    I've spent a lot of time and money on what I have, not all purchased but definitely a labour of love. I might be up for doing some trading if anyone is interested? Just PM me if you have a proposition (not sexual!)! :fabio:

    Ah, sad. It was taken down. Unsurprising I guess.

    Most of these were the unpolished vocals.. like, one of the takes the artist must have done. They often weren't the version from the released track. Which was interesting.

    I've taken out all the shit unuseable acapellas, and only keep ones that have something useable in them. I mainly use them for DnB, and I hate cheesy music, so only use vocals that do not reek of cheese!

    Basically, if it exists as an acapella and is worth having then I probably have it.

    Perhaps someone could upload some kind of a pack (with who knows what inside of it), I bet a hell of a lot of people would be extremely grateful if such a pack existed.

    P.S. I've got a few GB of random acapellas myself, but can hardly ever use them in a straight-up way, most of them aren't what I'm looking for. So I suppose if anyone has requests - you might get lucky, try.

    I'd like to give it a shot myself - has anyone got any trip-hoppy acapellas? The kind of Archive, Portishead, Tricky (any of the girls that has done vocals in his tracks)? Hell, I'll even take Stars.

    I'm curious, how do you guys match beats with your acapella?

    just using taptempo to find the bpm and then just trial and error?


    and how about the key and scale (in r&b for example)? and key changes?

    Well, I found that cutting as much as possible helps a lot. Slapping 2 minutes of vocals as a whole audio sample will probably never work out well, so you might as well have more control over it by chopping it to bits. About the key changes - I've heard legends about this Melodyne plugin, though I haven't actually started using it yet (I do plan to learn it at some point).

    I found Reaper to be the easiest-to-use-DAW for handling vocals, especially because of the smooth stretching abilities of the program. If you are not too extreme about it, you could stretch down and still get a natural sound of the voice you're working with. Ableton has warping, which I've already started liking despite of the negative impressions I had before. The whole idea is to be precise about how you manipulate vocals as much as possible.
