The Easy Way to Create Split-Screen Music Videos on iPhone or iPad.
Roland’s 4XCAMERA is a unique iOS app that makes it easy to create impressive music videos with up to four performances split on the screen. You start by capturing one video performance to the app, which becomes your guide. Then sing or play along and capture up to three more performances, adding new parts on each pass. As you perform, sound is recorded via the device’s built-in mic or through a connected audio capture device.
With just 4XCAMERA and an iPhone or iPad, it’s a breeze to get creative and take your video performances to new levels. And by sharing 4XCAMERA video projects through cloud-based storage, multiple musicians can use the app to contribute performances to your songs from anywhere in the world!
4XCAMERA is a free download from the App Store, and supports capturing up to two performances. An upgrade to full functionality is available via a small in-app purchase.
• Easy-to-use iOS app for creating split-screen music videos with up to four different performances
• Supports 1:1 and 16:9 aspect ratios
• Ten unique split-screen patterns available for each aspect ratio
• Adjust the volume for each screen and create the perfect sound mix
• Trim videos to the desired length in the app
• Use songs stored on your iPhone or iPad as discrete monitoring guides while performing
• Download and play along with drum performance video clips
Capture and Publish Multi-Layered Music Performances Using Your Phone or Tablet
Using 4XCAMERA on your device, it’s quick and simple to create split-screen videos of original music and cover songs all by yourself, and you never have to hassle with a complicated video editing program. After you’ve finished shooting, just select one of the 10 split-screen patterns, adjust volumes for each video, trim the beginning and end as needed, and then render a final file for sharing on YouTube and other social media sites.
Use Songs from Your Music Library as Guide Tracks
From within 4XCAMERA, you can access songs from the music library on your device and use them as guides for creating vocal and instrumental performances of your favorite music. Simply select a song and discretely monitor the sound on headphones as you perform along and capture your initial video. Only your original performance is recorded, providing a solid foundation for capturing additional performances for your split-screen project.
Collaborate with Other Musicians, At Home or Around the World
You can work on performance videos with anyone else who has the 4XCAMERA app, no matter where they’re located. After you start a 4XCAMERA video project and capture one or more performances, just upload the in-progress project to your favorite cloud storage location and share it with one or more collaborators. They can then download the project to their device, import it into the app, and add their own to performances to what you’ve started!
Perform with Live Drum Backing Anytime You Want
You now have on-demand access to real drum backing for your performances. From within the app, you can download one-minute video clips that feature drummers playing grooves in a variety of styles. Then, just jam and sing along with your virtual session drummer while capturing your parts. After shooting, finish off the video by applying your favorite split-screen pattern and making adjustments as desired.

Missing Essential Feature
I purchased this app to use without the Go:Mixer Pro in hopes for a simple solution to make split screen recordings. 4XCAMERA works and you can make a split screen multitrack recording. However, it is missing one feature that would take the app to the next level. I hope Roland considers adding a metronome feature in a future release. Adding a metronome that could be heard through headphones without being recorded would be tremendously useful.
Doesn’t keep recordings! Beware!
The synch issue is bad enough, but ultimately fixable on the back end. My biggest issue with this app is that I keep losing the entire recording. For no reason. I can check it throughout the event and ensure it’s running, but after you finish recording, if it’s a video of any substantial length (longer than maybe 15 minutes) it will get stuck, apparently, while processing the video, and not finish it. And then I lose the entire recording! Plenty of space left on the tablet (a 2018, up-to-date iPad), and functional for short videos, yet with no warning it will take forever to process and then just give a quick error message and... bye bye. Using this with the (low quality, overpriced) GoMixerPro, also from Roland, I’ve now lost 1 band rehearsal and 1 live performance! I’m at a loss for any explanation. The videos are simply gone, and not coming back. Could’ve used the basic (stock) camera app on the tablet, and will going forward, because this app is getting deleted and doesn’t even deserve 1 star. Thanks Roland! I always liked the company but recently they’ve put out some alarmingly low quality products with their name attached and it’s tough to know which ones might be decent ‘Roland’ and which ones don’t deserve to be under the same banner.
What a great little fun app!
Occasionally I get out my multitrack recorder and wrestle with it a day or two before getting frustrated by the complexity and sticking it back in the basement.
With this little app I made a 4 track version of In My Room (1 guitar, 3 vocals) in 20 minutes!
If you want to make a sophisticated multitrack production, this is not for you. But if you want to have fun and put together a song in minutes instead of hours, check this out- I love it!
