Is there such a thing as a video looping app?

Is there an Android app that'll let me record video of myself playing an instrument, then record another video alongside it with accompaniment on another instrument?

The end result would be a Zoom-style video of several combined performances. This kind of video is a mainstay of Youtube/Tik-tok, etc., but I might be massively underestimating the processing power required. If not an app, what software is needed to do this? Thanks so much.

AcapellaApp may be what you’re looking for?

If you want to get crazy with it, you could use audition to mix the multi track audio and premiere to mash up all the video, but yes that’s a lot of processing power (and software/hardware expense).

Response by poster: It looks like Acapella is iOS only, sadly.

I can give a specific recommendation, but I think you want to search on "video mixer".

I’m pretty sure most of these are made with Premier, Final Cut, etc, on a desktop/laptop. In a pinch I think I could get it done in Blender’s video sequence editor If I needed a free tool, but it would be a bit of a PITA. I know you’re looking for Android tools, but could you copy your video recordings to a PC instead?

There are many types of Apps available in the market. You can even hire a freelancer to create a new app. Creating the App is only part of the problem. Once you make the Loop, you need a vehicle or network to keep the loop alive.
