Microtuning is a way of manipulating the formant shift of an instrument
Microtuning is a way of setting Play to several different concert pitches like 432 Hz and 415 Hz
Microtuning is a way to change the entire instrument's pitch by a matter of cents to get it in tune with an out of tune arrangement
Microtuning is a way of emulating the tuning tables of other cultures by altering the scale to include deviant tunings that are off by a couple cents here and there, as well as leaving out notes altogether for pentatonic scales
What does ‘On Bow' mean?
The string player is playing a short articulation that ends with the bow stopped on the string.
The bow's horsehair is bowed with another bow to create an effect

What purpose do the Goliath instruments primarily serve?
Goliath is a gargantuan drum library that is primarily used to create massive cinematic drum patterns
Goliath is a multi-sampled very large piano that uses a combination of physical modeling and spectral synthesis to create tones far outside the range of a normal piano and is used for very unique sound design purposes
Goliath is a gigantic library of drum kits that were recorded in very unique spaces around the globe, from decommissioned nuclear reactors to old churches. It is a very unique drum library
Goliath is a great way for new users to have a wide, general palette of East West sounds for all genres

2: Decca tree stereo and close mic
What is another name for ‘Tam Tam"?
How are MIDI performances used with the SD2 library?
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
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 downloaded to the player, and they are retuned and retimed to match the performance of the SD2 sound library's live performance patches
What does ‘H' and ‘W' mean in the woodwind trills?
Half-cent and Whole-cent
High and Wide
Half-tone and Whole-Tone
Hurried and Wait
What does ‘Legato MOD' do exactly?
The Mod wheel is used to switch the instrument between legato and spiccato articulations
When the Mod Wheel is used during a melodic passage, a slur is used to connect the first note to the next note
The Mod Wheel is used for volume
The Mod Wheel is used to create a volume crossfade between samples
How do the timpani libraries make rolls easier?
The rolls are time-stretched to match the session tempo
The roll can be saved as a MIDI file to be used in a DAW
The left hand and right hand strike of the same pitch are placed an octave apart
The rolls' speed is dedicated to the Mod Wheel
Why would you create a separate lane for key switches?
To make exporting MIDI files without the keyswitch notes for a scoring program easier.
To help use those keyswitches for other sections and instruments
To convert the keyswitches to other kinds of MIDI data
To use the keys with data to create new melodies
What is a special way that the Play engine can speed up load times?
Play uses data compression to play instruments before they are loaded
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
Play uses CAF files to store Lossless encoded files for playback in real-time
Play can load sounds into RAM from a virtual cloud
What is a waterphone?
The waterphone is an underwater microphone that was used to capture how transients travel underwater
The waterphone is a cylindrical instrument that has a ports membrane at the top that you pour water through to get interesting, ghostly tones
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
A waterphone is an instrument that has a metal water jug with spikes coming off of it. It is played by bowing or striking the spikes
How would you route the audio from EWHS out of the Play engine to separate tracks of your DAW?
Audio is routed out from the microphone placement mixer
Audio is routed per articulation in the player
Audio is routed from the Play mixer
Audio is routed from the advanced instrument preferences
In Stormdrum 2, what is the purpose of the ‘Zendrum' settings?
The Zendrum is a MIDI controller. These instruments map in an intuitive way for zendrum users
Zendrum is a drum from the Remo company that makes several different kinds of sounds depending on the tension of the drum head
The Zendrum settings adhere to the tuning and timing methods of ancient Tibetan traditions.
The Zendrum settings are used to remap the entire Play library to be used with the APC40 controller from Akai
Which controllers does the EWHS like to see the most?
CC13, Aftertouch, pitch bend, and CC70
CC20, CC21, CC70, CC71
CC3, CC4, CC5, CC6
Mod Wheel, CC11, CC7, and velocity
Why would you use a script sim?
The script sim is used to keep track of the articulation setting and can be used as a controller map as well.
The script sim is used to get more dynamic layers out of an instrument where they previously did not exist.
The script sim can only be used with libraries that are programmed to take advantage of the sims.
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.
What is the difference between MIDI multis of SD2 and the performances of SD3?
In SD3, the MIDI files are located in the ‘MIDI performances' folder and can be quantized in different ways
In SD3, MIDI performances are not played within the player. They must be accused through the DAW and reassigned to channels there
In SD3, MIDI performances are not used. Instead, there is a new control system that is used to create tuning and timing patterns that are based on algorithms to emulate the performances of Mickey Hart
In SD3 actual recorded performances are time-stretched to match the tempo of the DAW instead of using MIDI files
In Stormdrum 3, what is the difference between Tune ‘A' and ‘B'?
Tuning ‘A' and ‘B are separate presets tat you can toggle between to figure out what kind of tuning you would like
Tuning ‘A' is simple tuning that also speeds up or slows down the sample. Tuning ‘B' is using time stretching to adjust tuning while retaining timing
Tuning ‘A' is based on just intonation, and Tuning ‘B' is based on Indonesian tunings
Tuning ‘A' is microtuning, and Tuning ‘B' is traditional western tuning
In Stormdrum 3, how do you turn on the SSL channel strip?
In the player, choose the ‘FX' power button and route whatever articulations you like there
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 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
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
How do accents work in the Hollywood Strings library?
Accents get their own articulation and instrument
Accents are used in the performance script section to add influence to the beginning of a given sound
There is a staccato or marcato articulation that plays layered at the beginning of the sustained or legato string articulation
Accents are a volume spike that is applied at the front end of samples
