For any karaoke freaks out there, There is an experimental package available for free from MIT called spleeter. This is a simple (in terms of use) AI which is quite remarkable in its ability to separate an audio file into component sounds. In its simplest form it can take a song and split it into separate instrumental and vocal files. Great for those of us who want to see how we would sound in place of the original artist. If you already have python 3.x installed you can get the package by

pip install spleeter

although it is always a good idea to make sure pip is current by first doing

pip install --upgrade pip

As an example, if you have a file, Mad World.mp3 you can split it up by

spleeter separate -i "Mad Worls.mp3" -o audio_out -n filename

The first time you run it will be a tad slow as it must first download the training files into the folder pretrained_models. Subsequent runs are much faster. Output is in

.\audio_out\Mad World\accompaniment.wav
.\audio_out\Mad World\vocals.wav

I found that the easiest way to plug myself in was to run Audacity (free audio software), drop in the accompaniment and vocals as separate stereo tracks, then add a new stereo track. Plug in the headphones, hit record and sing along. Then you can mute or delete the original vocal track and voila.

Adding command line parameters allows you to separate out instrumental tracks as separate drum, piano, etc.

If you have errors then fix them. If you wan't more help then tell us what errors you are getting. I can see several but I think you could go to the trouble of adding more information.

I just cannot believe how stupid people are.

I don't know about Europe, but in the US politics is treated like any other sport. As long as your team wins you don't give a shit what they do after.

I often wondered why so many of Trump's supporters keep supporting him even after they have obviously been negatively impacted - like the northern farmers losing big time because of the new tarrifs. All I can think is that they have been convinced that a little pain and suffering on their part is tolerable as long as those in the "other tribe" are suffering even more.

There is a big difference between

Could somebody help me out with programming a Tic Tac Toe game?


I would love to have to have the code

The first is "I'm stuck here" and the second is "I don't want to bother to learn anything. Please do it for me." At least you admit that it is for an assignment.
