How do I remove background music from a video with dialogue? I just want the video with the dialogue without the music playing. Is there a way to separate the audio track so it shows music and dialogue separately?

If the music and the dialogue are already on separate tracks as they're brought into PrPro, that's easy.

If they're part of one recording ... a single track essentially ...  that's a real problem. There's nothing within PrPro to auto-magically sort the music from the wanted dialogue,

Hi Collin. Unfortunately removing vocals from a track is not as simple as it may sound. In fact its near impossible without having he separate track files. However with some clear eq tweaking you could isolate and boost the vocal frequencies and take down the music. The problem is in the overlap. A lot of the vocals of and the music share frequencies and its at these points that you will inevitably hear the music play. There are tons of 3rd party vendors who offer software to try and emulate this process but in all my years of experience I have never seen a single one that ,manages it flawlessly.

To a degree only but I have never heard vocals cleanly extracted once they are mixed and output as a file

you might try simple low pass and high pass filters to try and mitigate background music, and then as posted earlier, some EQ stuff, but basically you're screwed re: getting rid of it entirely.

One thought: if you feel audience is being distracted by background music, say for example during a pause in the dialog, is there room to put a graphic overlay or text or something 'on screen' to keep the audience into the 'visual' aspect of your media presentation. The more the audience attends to the visual aspects, the less they will attend the 'sound' portion... maybe, just a thought.
