You can try Effect ->Stereo ->Reduce Vocals.

But, it's not likely to work very well with this type of music. This effect uses an "old trick" of subtracting the left and from the right. Since the main vocals are usually in the "center" of the stereo image (equal in both left and right speakers) the vocals are subtracted-out. This effect will remove all sounds that are identical in both left & right channels. You are left with a "mono" file (identical left & right channels.)

There is no software that can extract (or isolate) the vocals or a particular instrument...

The following has nothing to do with your original question........................

What format did you convert from?

It's generally best to work with WAV files. If you want to make an MP3, it's best to compress to MP3 once, after all of your editing is done. MP3 uses lossy compression (data is thrown-away during compression). In order to edit an MP3, it has to be decompressed first, and then re-compressed after editing. This requires an additional lossy compression step.

This "extra" decompression and re-compression also takes time, which can be a pain if you are working with large files.

Sometimes an MP3 (or other compressed format) is all you have, so you have no choice. But, uncompressed WAV files are the ideal.
