For a Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory short intense bunches of ~10 GeV protons at a frequency of ~15 to ~60Hz are required. In its current incarnation, the Fermilab Project X linac would produce 3GeV cw proton beam at 1ma, with varying bunch structures. For Project X the facility would be extended to provide pulsed H- beam at ~8GeV, with 5ma at a 10% duty factor providing 4MW. To form beam for a collider or a factory, the H- beam would be charge-exchange injected into an accumulator ring and formed into bunches. The bunches are then extracted into a Compressor ring where the bunches are compressed into short lengths suitable for extraction onto a target for πμ production. Parameters of the system are discussed.
