Allen Sides Gives the Low-Down on Intel and SONAR
While you're at AES, don't miss the Exhibitor Seminar co-sponsored by Cakewalk and Intel! Presenter will be the two-time Grammy Award--winner Allen Sides, owner of Ocean Way Studios, and the topic will be "Recording Mary J. Blige: High-Bandwidth Tracking Powered Through Multi-Core Computing." Sides recently had a history-making recording date with Mary J. Blige performing with a full orchestra. Allen viewed this session as the perfect opportunity to see if SONAR lived up to everything he had been hearing about it, and decided to use it as a shoot-out between SONAR and his standard two Pro Tools rigs linked together. Everyone in the studio was blown away to see the entire 48-track session recorded at 24-bit/192kHz using one Intel-based PCAudioLabs dual quad-core machine running SONAR. Allen will be interviewed about the session, followed by a brief Q&A.
