How are MIDI performances used with the SD2 library?
MIDI files may be downloaded to the player, and they are retuned and retimed to match the performance of the SD2 sound library's live performance patches
MIDI files may be played within SD2, but the note data only determine a timing and tuning guide for the performance loops in SD2
MIDI files may be dragged into the sequencer in the Player and separate channels can be played back on separate instruments in SD2
Multi-channel MIDI files play within a DAW to control Multi-channel Play instruments. They are multiple SD2 instruments that are on different channels, to create a great thunderous performance loop
What is an example of an effect articulation for the woodwinds?
Bop bop a lu bop bop bam boom
Doit, shake, minchamba, and bubble mute
Trill, cluster, Run, flutter tongue
Shake, doit, smear, and ‘san cuerpo', or ‘without body' (Ligature only)
What does ‘EXP' mean in a Hollywood Woodwinds library patch?
Aftertouch is used to get more vibrato out of the instrument
The instrument was recorded in an expressive way with vintage microphones
Expression is added to the instrument with CC10
Mod Wheel should add dynamics as well as vibrato
What is a special way that the Play engine can speed up load times?
Play can load sounds into RAM from a virtual cloud
Play uses data compression to play instruments before they are loaded
Play uses CAF files to store Lossless encoded files for playback in real-time
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
What is the main purpose of Goliath?
Goliath is a large sound bank of all genres that is a collection of the best of all of the East West libraries. It also has sampled instruments that were specifically made for the library
Goliath was created as a low brass ensemble
Goliath is a sample library of huge stringed instruments that are slightly over-sized
Goliath is a library of gargantuan drum sounds that is used primarily for orchestral, cinematic works
What is ‘double-tonguing'?
It's a technique of creating a false harmonic from the horn using the soft palate of the mouth
A way that brass players can articulate very fast passages by using both the tongue at the teeth, and the roof of the mouth
It's an in-joke among brass players
It is a way of stopping a brass instrument with the tongue to create a muted sound
What is a waterphone?
A waterphone is an instrument that is a blend of an alpine horn and a trombone that is meant to be played into a small vessel of water

It's an effect that is achieved by lightly tapping the instrument with a soft mallet
It is a special method of tremolo that is created by a rapid rubbing of the fingers on the strings of a harp
How do the timpani libraries make rolls easier?
The left hand and right hand strike of the same pitch are placed an octave apart
The roll can be saved as a MIDI file to be used in a DAW
The rolls' speed is dedicated to the Mod Wheel
The rolls are time-stretched to match the session tempo
What external controls work with the EWQLSC library?
Mod Wheel, CC11, CC7, and velocity as well as CC20 for restarting a phrase
CC25, CC26, aftertouch, and CC90
Bank MSB changes, LSB changes, CC20 and aftertouch
CC70, CC71, Aftertouch, and CC27
What is David's favorite instrument from the Gypsy library?
What is WordBuilder?
Wordbuilder uses spectral synthesis to playback speech patterns.
Wordbuilder is a synthesizer built on formant synthesis.
Wordbuilder uses a combination of physical modeling and granular synthesis to generate speech.
WordBuilder allows the composer to create phrases for the symphonic choir to sing.
In Stormdrum 3, how do you turn on the SSL channel strip?
Turn on the ‘FX" button on the Play mixer, then turn the power button on for the input of the channel strip. There are power buttons for the transient designer, the reverb, and the compressor as well
In the browser, choose the ‘FX' folder and load a preset there. The SSL section will pop up in the Player shortly after
In the player, choose the ‘FX' power button and route whatever articulations you like there
In the Mixer, simply route any articulations and instruments through the master bus, and then in the Player window assign the SSL modules individually based on the bussing system
What does ‘H' and ‘W' mean in the woodwind trills?
High and Wide
Hurried and Wait
Half-cent and Whole-cent
Half-tone and Whole-Tone
What kind of palette is the Dark Side working with?
The Dark Side is a collection of vocal samples taken from mental institutions

What are the 3 languages of WordBuilder?
Russian, Latin, and German
English, Phonetics, and votox
Russian, Latin, and Greek
German, Italian, and Russian
In Hollywood Strings, what does NV NV VB MV mean?
It means that the instrument can have No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato played via velocity
It means that the articulations for No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato are loaded and ready to play with CC11
It means there is a different dynamic per channel: No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato
Using the Mod Wheel from 0-127 passes through 4 dynamic changes: No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato
What is a way to free up track areas in your main window?
Use keyswitch instruments instead of having multiple tracks per articulation
Have all articulations summed to a single bus in your mixer
Have a Play instance on the master bus and route all MIDI there
Have Play instruments at the top tracks in your DAW to determine where RAM priorities are allocated and use all dynamic articulation control with CC2 instead of CC1
What controller should you always try with East West libraries?
What is the difference between a slur and portamento?
A slur is used to tie a legato instrument's passage together, and portamento is used to smoothly transition pitch
A slur is sloppier and has indeterminate time when moving from note to note
A slur is slower than portamento
A slur has a shorter duration between the first and second pitch, giving it a different curve than the linear portamento
What does ‘DXF' stand for?
Dipole Cross Fade
Double Cross Frequency
Dynamic Cross Fade
Dynamic Cross Frequency
What category is the Harp under?

The Hollywood Harp is in the vintage items libraries
The Hollywood harp is in the ‘odds and ends' library
The Hollywood Harp is actually in the EWQLSO
Who was the engineer on EWQLSO?
Keith O. Johnson
Why would you use a script sim?
The script sim is used to get more dynamic layers out of an instrument where they previously did not exist.
If you are using an instrument that does not have a script built in, like Round Robin samples, these scripts provide a facsimile by using different tuning, timing, and sample selection techniques.
The script sim can only be used with libraries that are programmed to take advantage of the sims.
The script sim is used to keep track of the articulation setting and can be used as a controller map as well.
