A good place to find versions of songs without vocals, also known as karaoke versions, is YouTube. The large selection of karaoke music on YouTube ranges from current chart hits to old standards. Other sources for karaoke tracks are Spotify, iTunes and Karaoke Version.
A good way to gain access to a huge selection of songs is to purchase a premium membership on Spotify. This enables listeners to create karaoke playlists that they can save to their devices and access offline as long as they are members.
Users who prefer to purchase and download their karaoke music can find an extensive selection of music without vocal tracks on iTunes. iTunes groups karaoke collections by such themes as artist, style and decade, though current chart hits are not always available.
Users can also purchase and download a broad selection of music without vocals at the Karaoke Version website. Songs purchased here are available in a variety of audio formats, including MP3+ CDG. Each song downloaded in this format consists of two separate audio and video files that users may then use to create CDG discs. Karaoke Version also lets users customize their lyric videos by choosing their own backgrounds, which are available in black and a range of colors.
