Why go for Lalal.ai? 

The biggest reason for suggesting Lalal.ai is its accuracy and ease of use. The service uses a new machine learning neural network, Cassiopeia, fed with 20TB of training data for practice and utmost preciseness.

It performs exceptionally well with vocals. And even though you can hear a subtle hum in the instrumental stream, you can easily use it for karaoke, placing under videos, re-recording, and more. In my experience, this one is definitely one of the best vocal removers online as of now.

Here’s an example:

I tested it on my current favorite track, Stay by The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber. Just play them and see the performance yourself.

Increase or decrease the intensity of audio processing

What’s more? You can even manage the audio processing quality while splitting the stems. There are three options.

  • Normal – The default option uses an average amount of sound filtration.
  • Mild – Minimum amount of filtration that leaves behind audible errors in the stems. Great, if you want to remove the additional background noise from the track.
  • Aggressive – Tries to detect and remove all possible errors. However, it may lead to a larger amount of audible artifacts.

You can select the processing level before selecting the track from under the Select File tab. If you want to switch it after previewing the track, click Back to redo it.
