The Acapella App

The iOS app Acapella creates multi-frame music videos so easily it’s shocking. I haven’t listened to it side by side with my go-to video editor – Filmora, but why would I? It’s easy to use and boasts above-average sound quality. I also have seen examples of collaborations between multiple users that sound and look very refined.

By the way, If you have seen a Zoom-looking multi-frame virtual performance that looks like it was recorded live, rest assured that the final product took hours of painstaking effort to edit together. This one app has the potential to streamline the process of – say it with me – asynchronous music performance. No Android version, unfortunately. This brief jam was recorded with the wired earbud microphone that comes with the iPhone SE 2020.

I’m planning on buying the full version, allowing for unlimited recording time, no watermarks, etc. Give it a listen below. Full song coming next.
