Acapella: Acapella allows musicians to record and mix up to 9 different instrumental parts to create a professional looking and sounding video. Similar videos can also be created with iMovie and Adobe Audition.
The free version of the Acapella app allows you to record content up to 1 minute long. The paid version allows for longer videos.
Record yourself playing multiple instruments or connect with friends to play "together" even while apart.

Bach’s cello suites are of course, unaccompanied. This artist added harmonies where Bach implied them- actually playing the overtones and exploring the missing layers of chord structure. He used iMovie’s picture in picture feature to make this video. The Acapella App would be a great tool to make a similar video if you don’t have iMovie. Maybe you could try this with a snippet of Bach while practicing at home!
