For the past several years our Meet a Rep events have been a fantastic alternative to the traditional clinics and scripted demos that have, for the most part, gone the way of the dinosaurs in our industry. Rather than being rehearsed demos, Meet a Rep days were more of a casual hangout where we would show you whatever you wanted to see in SONAR.
After a long hiatus, like the coelacanth, Meet a Rep days are back. Only this time, they’ve got a new name.
Cakewalk JAM Session.
No, we won’t be sitting around a bonfire singing campfire songs. Nor will we be plugged in and playing the latest tune. What we will be doing, however, is looking at SONAR in any way you want, which is what Cakewalk JAM Sessions are all about.
Why the change?
Us Cakewalkers who do these events really aren’t ‘reps’. Plus, ‘Meet a Rep’ started to feel a bit generic after a while. So its out with the old and in with the new!
What’s different about the JAM Session?
Absolutely nothing! JAM Sessions have the same open ended, personalized, one-on-one format of the old Meet a Rep days. They’re still about hanging out, asking questions, and getting to look at the features you want to look at (which can be tough to do at a traditional clinic or demo).
Where will JAM Sessions be located?
Right now we’ll be hosting JAM Sessions in Los Angeles and Dallas as these are the home territories of the hosts. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to hit the road like we have in years past, but that’s why we’re doing our monthly CakeTV Live broadcasts.
I’ll be hosting my JAM Sessions on the second Wednesday of the month at AudioMIDI and the last Wednesday of the month at West LA Music (see below for exact times, locations, etc.). Mike Trujillo will be hosting his JAM Session in Dallas (exact time and location TBD).
JAM Sessions are free of charge and are open to anyone who wants to visit weather you’re a SONAR user or not. So drop in, hang out, ask questions, or just observe. There’s no pressure and its totally unscripted as its all about getting an inside look into SONAR the way you want.
We look forward to seeing you at one or more of the upcoming JAM Sessions listed below.
