You don't need to worry too much about the apps you run adding up to
more than 100% of cpu time in total - the operating system (Windows XP)
will simply divide the available resources between them.
Because of the way that VNC operates, it is usually the case that the
server can run using very little CPU even though normally it might take
40-50%. In effect, the server takes advantage of the extra CPU resource
if it's available, but doesn't *require* it necessarily.
Because VNC Server can cope with not having much CPU to use, your audio
processing programs should be able to operate effectively alongside it.
The best way to find out whether VNC will work on your system is to try
it - it is free, after all, so you've lost nothing even if it won't work
