The simplest way to import songs on Audacity is by dragging a song from a folder into the Audacity window. Here’s how to do that:

  1. First of all, open the folder in which the song is stored, and then open Audacity on the same screen. Now make both windows smaller so that you can see both the folder and Audacity on the screen.
  2. Now click and hold down on the song which you want to make vocal-free. Move your cursor to the Audacity windows and then release the click.
  3. By doing so, the song will be drag and dropped to Audacity. You can also use the same when you want to import any song from iTunes. Simply drag and drop the song into the Audacity tab.
