What does ‘On Bow’ mean?
The bow is placed on the string and rubs along the vertical of the fingerboard
The string player is playing a short articulation that ends with the bow stopped on the string.
The bow is flipped upside down and played with the wood
The bow’s horsehair is bowed with another bow to create an effect
What is ‘double-tonguing’?
It is a way of stopping a brass instrument with the tongue to create a muted sound
It’s a technique of creating a false harmonic from the horn using the soft palate of the mouth
It’s an in-joke among brass players
A way that brass players can articulate very fast passages by using both the tongue at the teeth, and the roof of the mouth

Doit, shake, minchamba, and bubble mute
Shake, doit, smear, and ‘san cuerpo’, or ‘without body’ (Ligature only)
Trill, cluster, Run, flutter tongue
Bop bop a lu bop bop bam boom
Why would you create a separate lane for key switches?
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
To make exporting MIDI files without the keyswitch notes for a scoring program easier.
What is the difference between a slur and portamento?
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
A slur is sloppier and has indeterminate time when moving from note to note
A slur is used to tie a legato instrument’s passage together, and portamento is used to smoothly transition pitch
What was the name of the producer that Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix teamed up with on the Hollywood Strings library?
In Hollywood Strings, what does NV NV VB MV mean?
Using the Mod Wheel from 0-127 passes through 4 dynamic changes: No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato
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
What is WordBuilder?
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.
Wordbuilder uses spectral synthesis to playback speech patterns.
Which controllers does the EWHS like to see the most?
Mod Wheel, CC11, CC7, and velocity
CC20, CC21, CC70, CC71
CC3, CC4, CC5, CC6
CC13, Aftertouch, pitch bend, and CC70
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
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
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
In Stormdrum 2, what is the purpose of the ‘Zendrum’ settings?
The Zendrum settings adhere to the tuning and timing methods of ancient Tibetan traditions.
The Zendrum is a MIDI controller. These instruments map in an intuitive way for zendrum users
The Zendrum settings are used to remap the entire Play library to be used with the APC40 controller from Akai
Zendrum is a drum from the Remo company that makes several different kinds of sounds depending on the tension of the drum head
What is a waterphone?
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
The waterphone is an underwater microphone that was used to capture how transients travel underwater
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
The waterphone is a cylindrical instrument that has a ports membrane at the top that you pour water through to get interesting, ghostly tones
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 can only be used with libraries that are programmed to take advantage of the sims.
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.
What does ‘SUS 6’ mean in a string ensemble?
It means there are 6 articulations loaded
It means there is a chord being played with a suspended chord with a 6 in it
There are 6 voices playing at the same time for the attack of the sound
It means there are 6 stages to the SUS instrument to pass through via the volume envelope
How would you route the audio from EWHS out of the Play engine to separate tracks of your DAW?
Audio is routed from the Play mixer
Audio is routed from the advanced instrument preferences
Audio is routed out from the microphone placement mixer
Audio is routed per articulation in the player
How many mic positions were used to create the Stormdrum 3 library?
2: Decca tree stereo and close mic
5: Close, Mid, HiFi, Main, and Vintage
4: Close, Stage, Hall, and Surround
3: Close, Mid, and Far
What are the 3 languages of WordBuilder?
German, Italian, and Russian
Russian, Latin, and German
English, Phonetics, and votox
Russian, Latin, and Greek
What is Bisbigliando?
It is a special method of tremolo that is created by a rapid rubbing of the fingers on the strings of a harp
It is an articulation that is made by the bending of harmonics created on the string
It's an effect that is achieved by lightly tapping the instrument with a soft mallet
It is an effect created by wind blowing over the strings
What is a way to free up track areas in your main window?
Have all articulations summed to a single bus in your mixer
Use keyswitch instruments instead of having multiple tracks per articulation
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 is a special way that the Play engine can speed up load times?
Play uses CAF files to store Lossless encoded files for playback in real-time
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
Play uses data compression to play instruments before they are loaded
Play can load sounds into RAM from a virtual cloud
What are the main singers of Symphonic Choir?
Rock, Country, EDM, and Pop
Rock, Pop, Jazz, and Soul
Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses, and Boys Choir
Bulgarian, Indian, Chinese, American
Who was the engineer on EWQLSO?
Keith O. Johnson
What are the different mic positions in the EWQLSO?
Mid, Side, and ambient
Top, Bottom, and room
Close, Stage, and Surround
Mid, close, and far
What is the advantage of using the FX version of the Dark Side instruments?
When switching between the FX processed and unprocessed instruments, the samples are common amongst the instruments, so the load time is very fast
Switching back and forth can create an interesting zippering effect, and that can be bounced to disk for effect
The FX versions of the instruments are used to create interesting cinematic sound design for film
The effect version of the instrument is usually lower in memory usage
