You’ve probably heard of LALAL.AI in the past, what with their capability to separate vocals and instrumentals from audio files. However, the service is now taking things to the next level; you can now use LALAL.AI to not only separate vocals and instrumentals, but even get individual instruments separately. Here’s what that means, and how you can easily get started.
What is LALAL.AI
If you’ve never heard of it before, here’s a quick intro to what is LALAL.AI. It’s basically a service that uses machine-learning and AI to do a bunch of really cool things with audio files.
You can use LALAL.AI to separate vocals and music from audio, which is great for a bunch of things like Karaoke. And now, you can use LALAL.AI to even separate different kinds of instruments from your audio files.

How to Separate and Isolate Musical Instruments from Songs
Now that you have an idea of what LALAL.AI can do, let’s take a look at how you can use LALAL.AI to isolate individual musical instruments from music. For this example, I’m using Luke Graham’s song “7 Years” because it has a nice combination of piano, drums, and a bassline, making it a nice song to test LALAL.AI.
- Head over to the LALAL.AI website. Click on the drop-down arrow.
- Choose ‘Drums’, ‘Bass’, ‘Electric Guitar’, ‘Acoustic Guitar’, or ‘Piano’ from the stem-separation type menu.
- Then, click on ‘Select File’ and upload your audio file to LALAL.AI
- The website will start processing the audio (this can take some time, depending on the length of the audio file you’ve uploaded).
- Once done, you will see the preview of the file with the instrument separated, as well as the file with the instrument removed from the rest of the audio.
- You can also change the instrument you want to isolate, and generate new previews.
Instruments that LALAL.AI can Separate
If you’re wondering which instruments can be isolated using LALAL.AI’s advanced new AI, well right now, LALAL.AI has trained its systems to isolate five of the most common types of instruments in most audio files.
- Electric Guitar
- Acoustic Guitar
One of the best things about LALAL.AI is that it has a very flexible pricing structure. You can try it out for free, so you don’t need to pay anything before you’re convinced that the service can do what you need it to do.
Plus, there’s a free tier available which can let you process files up to 10 minutes in length, and up to 50MB in size, which is great if you just need to process one single song, or if you’re simply testing the service.
Once you’ve checked things out, I’m sure you’ll be willing to spend some money and get the full benefits of LALAL.AI. In that case, you’ll be glad to know that it has a very reasonable pricing.
The Lite plan, which costs $10 lets you process up to 90 minutes of audio, or up to 2GB of audio files.
On the other hand, you can use the Plus plan, priced at $20 to get up to 300 minutes or 2GB of audio processing bandwidth.
Use LALAL.AI’s New Feature to Easily Separate Piano, Bass, and Drums from Audio Files
While you must already be using LALAL.AI to separate vocals and instrumental music from songs, the service’s new feature is even more powerful and takes things to the next level. With LALAL.AI’s new instrument isolation feature, you can easily separate individual instruments from your favourite songs. This is great whether you just want to play along to the track, or if you need the separate instrument track to learn how to play it on your own.
This is definitely a very useful feature, and the fact that you can use it for free is just a cherry on top. You should definitely check out LALAL.AI and try out the new feature right away.
