If you're talking about separating out the instruments in an audio file, there are limited ways in which you might be able to isolate the elements which have been panned to the centre, but you can't separate it much more than that. Alternatively you might look at Jammitt, which works by using the individual tracks from the original mix.

If you're talking about a MIDI file, that's different...

You can't split up an audio file into MIDI tracks, if that's what you mean, though Google might turn up MIDI versions of well-known tracks that you could adapt. It depends what the track is, and what elements you want.

What you're looking for essentially doesn't exist.

Some companies have made claims to do something vaguely in this direction, but they are raising false hopes with the aim of catching a few unwary innocents to part with their money.

(This is a service rather than a commercial software product.)

I'd like to know if anyone has had any joy with that service. Edith Piaf and Vera Lynn are one thing - I wonder how it would cope with a Dream Theater song!
