Committed now, otherwise it will probably get forgotten.

You sent a number of drafts of vocal remover about this time
of which the attached was the last one and it has been rather
forgotten since (sorry). It has extra fields for vocal range removal
presets, "vocal reduction amount" and "normalize to this level".
The latter was added because clipping was discovered at some
settings with tracks amplified close to -0 dB. This field has a
setting to turn normalisation off.
You were concerned about simple reduction at 100% not leaving
silence as expected. In the attached version it gives a Nyquist error
and does not process. This works in the currently committed
version where there is no control for reduction amount.
You said "I've been working on error-checking code which works
successfully on its own - once transported into vocalremover though
it creates incorrect error checks so I need to do more work."
I'm still a little puzzled by the extra "spikiness" in the waveform after
vocal removal which appears to me to cause the clipping.
Vocal Remover help screens would have to be redone for Linux
800x600 for the same reasons as clicktrack, and I'd guess no more
than three or four lines of ;info text would be possible (we have many
lines now, as well as the help text). All this said, I don't recall anyone
complaining about the current vocal remover help screen being too
tall on Linux (which is true on Ubuntu 800x600).
All in all, shall we aim to get this into 2.0 (circa October) rather
