[Harp-L] Acapella App Autumn Leaves

Acapella is a phone app but I think you can get it on a computer.  It is
free for 1 minute videos, I paid $25 per year to be able to do either 3
minute or 10 minute videos.  Sadly, if you choose the 10 minute version and
stop your song at 5 minute, you cannot chop it off.

Each video is recorded live by my phone.  Then up to 9 windows put those
videos together.  It also plays back the videos you have already recorded
into headphones while you record the new one, so you have a reference
point.  I think it is possible to mute those if you want.

After the recording, you can alter it by panning left or right, adding
reverb or echo and mixing the volumes.  I definitely added some reverb to
the harmonetta and did some panning work and volume mixing.  The whole
video probably took 20 minutes from downloading the app to completion.
