Default Advice on music removal?

I have dozens of clips (wavs) from old public domain sources. Most have some kind of background music running through them. I know I could use some combinations of eq and fft to get rid of the music if I handled the clips on a one-at-a-time basis but thought I'd ask for advice and ideas that might help automate the process before I just jump in on this labor intensive procedure. There are enough that it would be a real time saver to be able to try to batch them somehow. Suggestions?

Thanks,
BabaG

If there is a spot with a sample of just the noise, this app is great at learning it and removing it.

thanks, coachz. unfortunately, it's music so it's tonal and changes. for basic noise i usually just use reafft. tends to be kind of slow and cumbersome for this kind of thing, though, in my experience. in the past this is something i would have used samplitude's spectral editing for. very fast and versatile. easy to select tones and quash them visually. don't think reaper has anything of that level...yet. no longer have samplitude on the machine either.

thanks again,
BabaG
