How to Make Your Own Acapella Version of Bob Sinclar's World, Hold On

Bob Sinclar's World, Hold On is a classic dance anthem that features the vocals of Steve Edwards and a catchy whistle melody. The song was released in 2006 and became a hit in many countries, reaching number one in Italy and Hungary, and number nine in the UK. The song also won a Grammy nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.

If you love this song and want to create your own acapella version of it, you might be wondering how to do it. Acapella is a style of music that uses only human voices, without any instruments or backing tracks. Acapella can be challenging to make, but also very rewarding and fun.


In this article, we will show you some tips and tricks on how to make your own acapella version of Bob Sinclar's World, Hold On. You will need some basic equipment and software, such as a microphone, a computer, an audio editor, and a pitch correction tool. You will also need some creativity and patience.

Step 1: Find the Original Song and Isolate the Vocals

The first step is to find the original song and isolate the vocals from it. You can do this by using an audio editor, such as Audacity, which is free and easy to use. You can download Audacity from here.

Once you have Audacity installed, open it and import the original song by clicking on File > Import > Audio. Then, select the song file from your computer and click Open. You should see two tracks in Audacity: one for the left channel and one for the right channel.

To isolate the vocals, you need to invert one of the tracks and align them perfectly. This will cancel out the instrumental parts of the song and leave only the vocals. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Select one of the tracks by clicking on its name.

  • Click on Effect > Invert. This will flip the waveform upside down.

  • Zoom in on the beginning of the tracks by using the magnifying tool.

  • Drag one of the tracks until it matches exactly with the other track. You can use the time ruler at the top to help you.

  • Play back the tracks and listen if you can hear only the vocals. If not, adjust the alignment until you get it right.

  • Select both tracks by clicking on their names while holding down Shift.

  • Click on Tracks > Mix > Mix Stereo Down to Mono. This will merge the two tracks into one mono track.

You should now have a single track with only the vocals of Bob Sinclar's World, Hold On. You can export this track by clicking on File > Export > Export as MP3. Choose a name and a location for your file and click Save.

Step 2: Record Your Own Vocals and Whistle

The next step is to record your own vocals and whistle over the original vocals. You can do this by using a microphone and Audacity again. You will need to wear headphones while recording to avoid feedback.

To record your own vocals and whistle, follow these steps:

  • Open Audacity and import the vocal track that you exported in Step 1 by clicking on File > Import > Audio.

  • Click on Edit > Preferences > Devices. Under Recording, choose your microphone as the input device and make sure that Mono is selected as the number of channels. Click OK.

  • Click on Transport > Transport Options > Overdub (on/off). This will allow you to record over the existing track.

  • Click on Record (the red button) and start singing or whistling along with the original vocals. Try to match the pitch and timing as closely as possible.

  • When you are done, click on Stop (the yellow button).

  • You should see a new track below the original vocal track with your recording. You can play back both tracks together and listen how they sound.
