Don’t call it a comeback; he’s been here for years…
According to The Boombox, LL Cool J has partnered up with Sony and his social
network site Boomdizzle to launch a new virtual studio production software, My
LL explained at a recent press conference that the program will help connect
far-flung producers and emcees live in a virtual studio. “Producers email me the
track, I’m emailing vocals – they don’t like something, I’m sending it back.
We’re going back and forth and doing this dance,” he explained. “A lot of music
is being created that way right now. What I wanted to do is be able to create
music in real time…you may get with a kid from London, you may get with a kid
from Paris simply because you went on the site and visited the lobby and met
somebody and went into a session and started creating. So this is the next level
of music creation.”And that’s not the only news that LL shared at the conference. XXL is reporting
that he also revealed he’s working on releasing his 13th solo album and will be
using My Connect Studio to record portions of it.
“I’m going to be doing a little bit of the album on the My Connect Studio, make
sure that it is official,” LL said. “And as a matter of fact I started on my
album too. It’s authentic Hip Hop, it’s the business…it’s 2012, so it doesn’t
sound like it would sound if it were 10 years ago or 20 years ago, but it’s
definitely official. It’s a breath of fresh air. It doesn’t sound like anything
that’s out right now. I think it’s crazy. It’s the business. It’s real.”My
Connect Studio is available for PCs and will soon be compatible for Mac
computers and all mobile devices.
This new software sounds like the business! We’re just thinkin about the
limitless possibilities of artist and producer collaborations with this virtual
studio. We’re looking forward to Poppin the Hood on the new software and album!
