At last week’s WinHec conference in Seattle, Intel hosted an X64 Jam session at the Experience Music Project.
Along with Intel employees and attendees to the conference, the x64 Jam featured special guest jazz organist Tony Monaco, who had just received his copy of Cakewalk's Project5 Version 2 and wanted to debut it live. With Project5 as his host, he relied primarily on Dimension for all his sounds playing Grand Piano, Clav, Rhodes, Organ, and Analog lead.
“With Project5 Version 2, the day is now here where all you need is a laptop and a good MIDI controller for your live rig," Monaco said. "René Ceballos, who coded Dimension is a monster… it’s all usable sounds, and the way Project5 and Dimension allow you to access the right parameters quickly makes it playable…plus I have to say that Dimension’s Grand Piano kicks all the sampled pianos in my studio up and down the street.”
The entire jam session was recorded live using the SONAR x64 Technology Preview release on a 955X Express chipset-based 3.2 GHz Intel Pentium Processor Extreme Edition Dual Core workstation with 8GB of RAM. The dual core processor features 3.2GH core speed in each core, and supports Hyper-Threading to enable four threads. The workstation was running the Windows XP Pro X64 Edition that was just released this week

With 16 simultaneous tracks recording, input monitoring enabled, 6 milliseconds of latency on an Edirol UA-100, running 14 plug-ins, including Sonitus multiband compressors, reverbs, and EQs, the CPU meter in SONAR barely budged with the new Intel Dual Core Processor.
After the jam, Cakewalk Professional Services Specialist Brandon Ryan gave a clinic to the musicians in attendance, creating a full mix from one of the recorded jams, emphasizing the workflow and mixing benefits provided by SONAR.
