I have a collection of movies, and there are some soundtracks that I would like to listen to. How do we capture the soundtracks from a movie without the voice and the sound effects of the movie?

No idear'. I'd say your best bet is just looking to see if a soundtrack is commercially available.

I've seen some of these soundtracks on YouTube, but most of them are compiled into a single compilation that I cannot choose the specific song or track that I'd like to play.

Soundtracks used to be released on vinyl, tape and c.d.. Aren't downloads available today? Every other individual song seems to be.

I guess that's the only way to acquire the movie or TV show soundtrack. I was thinking that we could get the soundtrack from the DVD's that we have.

You can rip the audio from a DVD, but it might not be perfect. The easiest way, in my opinion, is to use HandBrake to rip the DVD into a video file format, then load it into VLC Media Player to split the audio from the video (demux). Both HandBrake and VLC Media Player are free and both work on Mac and Windows. You might be disappointed with the quality of your audio though. I think you can use Audacity for this too, but I don't know that software well. It's also free if you want to try it. Have you tried checking YouTube for the soundtrack?

@Rusty, it depends on how obscure/popular the movie was and what year it was shot.

If the movie was popular, then the soundtracks may be sold individually as music records. I have an album of Hans Zimmer's famous soundtracks. His music is like a marriage of instrumental pop and classical music.

Groot, Hans Zimmerman is incredibly expressive and I don't think there's ever been a real miss with his work. I think he's a modern composer with the most depth when compared to his contemporaries.

Reggie,have you tried looking at some of the fan sites? Sometimes they'll have a music link posted. Reddit's music subs as well are another good place to look. Good luck!

Hey there Reggie. I have a fantastic suggestion for you. I was listening to the Piano Guys, and their rendition of the Pirates of the Caribbean came up. It was better than the original, in my own opinion. The point is, you can find lots of covers of soundtracks on the internet.
