LL Cool J Teams Up With Dolby For The Boomdizzle Virtual Recording Studio

Rapper LL Cool J introduces the Boomdizzle Virtual Recording Studio at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Ludacris wasn’t the only rapper to introduce his latest product at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. Rapper/actor LL Cool J was also in attendance to present his new venture with Dolby, the Boomdizzle Virtual Recording Studio.

LL Cool J kicked off his presentation by explaining how tiresome it can be for an artist to work with a producer and/or engineer who’s hundreds or thousands of miles away and the endless amount of e-mails that end up being sent.

“The problem was I’m in L.A. My producer or engineer’s in New York. I wanna go in the studio tonight, but I wanna collaborate,” LL Cool J explained in a video exclusive for GamerLive.TV. “I don’t wanna e-mail you my track and then you e-mail me back your bass line and then I e-mail you back a vocal then you e-mail me back a drum and then we e-mail back and forth and back and forth. Whether it’s dance or Hip Hop or whatever music you like, e-mailing back and forth drives us crazy. So how can we collaborate in real time?”

The NCIS: Los Angeles star then went on to explain how Boomdizzle connects artists, producers, and engineers without them having to be in the same room with one another.

“I put a team together and we designed a technology that allows two people, different cities, different countries, different continents, to collaborate and record music in real time,” said LL Cool J. “So if your friend is in Paris and you’re in Berlin or if your friend is in Japan and you’re in Miami you guys will be able to go online, look at each other on our video chat, and record music live in real time. And I think that that basically revolutionizes the world of music. A lot of people don’t have money for plane tickets to Paris. A lot of people don’t have money for plane tickets to Miami. But they have access to the internet and they love music. They’re fans and they wanna record and Boomdizzle gives them an opportunity to do that.”

    the product seems aight, but what kind of name is 'boomdizzle'?

  • Anonymous

    Sounds like a dope idea for a product. All I'm worried about is hearing LL smacking his lips everytime you turn it on and off...

  • thought dog

    Boomdizzle sounds like a nickname for taking a shit and pissing at the same time.

    Right, bcasue mike jones and slim thug are legends.

  • NONO

    Google and yahoo sounded crazy too...But most of you were too young to remember when they popped up.

  • NONO

    The name might sound crazy, but so did Yahoo and Google when they came out. Great idea too!!! In reality, It should be very successful.

  • Ice

    What the hell is up with that name - BoomDizzle???!!!!!! WTF LL is waaaayyyyy out of the touch . Who is advising this dude ????????

  • Roland

    Good Point, yes but if you're not signed to a label and it's just between you and I who are both into music but live in different states, who's leaking music ? Of course a Highly recognized emcee with money won't do this because of the possible repercussions but that doesn't stop the average joe from doing it.

  • TEXAS

    LL LAME J HAS SOME OF THE WEAKEST LYRICS I EVER HEARD CASH MONEY SHOULD SIGH THIS CLOWN HE FIT IN WITH ALL THE WATER DOWN SHIT

    • Ksolo

      LL is a goat clown... I know hiphop is what have you done lately but you put your foot and leg in your mouth..

    • NONO

      LL would murder half of these rappers out in a battle. Don't let the love songs fool you. I know you have to be some young fool who hunted down a couple songs on the internet, so you probably don't know any better.

    Exchange projects in real time is exactly the problem here, LL should have know, many music makers have thought of this concept before, but the problem is this is the easiest way to leak music. No producer in his right state of mind will go for this ish. The reason why people email parts of songs forth and back is to aviod leaks and save their products. ya dig.

    • Anonymous

      Best option to close distance? they could still email the whole project but they don't. Go back and read about Watch the throne, how they avoided all the leaks. Everything came in peices and nothing was let out, kanye literally established a unidirectional flow.

    • NONO

      Valid point on theft, but that's not the reason people e-mail parts back and forth. People e-mail because it's usually the best option to close distance.

      Damn, good point. I was really feeling this new product until you posted this. Even emails get hacked into and eventually lead to leaks. LL better get that shit Iron-gated!

  • Anonymous

    Ll clearly don't know shit about how the product works, question was asked, 'how does the user interface work?

  • HipHopObama

    "I dont hate L, I dont care if he's fucking tranny's or not, all i care about is Hip Hop" http://bit.ly/wl4L1g

  • Roland

    I never understood the name but product could be tight if it works !! A Hell of alot better than that email process !! Only time will tell. The fact that He hooked up with Dolby, It must be nice.

  • Its Um

    That's what some people said about the name google as an search enigne name, but look how that turned out. As long as it does what it says it does good, then the name is a minor flaw.
