During the 2005 WinHec Conference (Seattle, April 25-27, 2005), 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 Project5 Version 2. With Project5, 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,” commented Monaco. “René Ceballos, who coded Dimension, is a monster. [Dimension] has all usable sounds and allows you to access the right parameters and quickly makes it playable. 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 SONAR x64 Technology Preview on an Intel dual-core workstation that featured 8 GB of RAM. 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.
