What is the difference between MIDI multis of SD2 and the performances of SD3?
In SD3, MIDI performances are not played within the player. They must be accused through the DAW and reassigned to channels there
In SD3 actual recorded performances are time-stretched to match the tempo of the DAW instead of using MIDI files
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 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
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
Play can load sounds into RAM from a virtual cloud
Play uses data compression to play instruments before they are loaded
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
What does ‘H’ and ‘W’ mean in the woodwind trills?
Hurried and Wait
Half-cent and Whole-cent

CC13, Aftertouch, pitch bend, and CC70
CC3, CC4, CC5, CC6
In Stormdrum 3, what is the difference between Tune ‘A’ and ‘B’?
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 microtuning, and Tuning ‘B’ is traditional western tuning
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 based on just intonation, and Tuning ‘B’ is based on Indonesian tunings
What is ‘double-tonguing’?
It’s an in-joke among brass players
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 is a way of stopping a brass instrument with the tongue to create a muted sound
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

What is Bisbigliando?
It is an effect created by wind blowing over the strings
It is a special method of tremolo that is created by a rapid rubbing of the fingers on the strings of a harp

Shake, doit, smear, and ‘san cuerpo’, or ‘without body’ (Ligature only)
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.
How do accents work in the Hollywood Strings library?
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
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
How are MIDI performances used with the SD2 library?
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
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 dragged into the sequencer in the Player and separate channels can be played back on separate instruments in SD2

Wordbuilder uses spectral synthesis to playback speech patterns.
In Stormdrum 3, how do you turn on the SSL channel strip?
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
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
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
Which controller assignments are unique to SD3?
SD3 uses aftertouch to control the filter settings, and velocity to adjust the timing of rolls
SD3 uses aftertouch and CC8 for dynamic and loudness control
SD3 uses CC2 for dynamic crossfade. CC1 is used to control filter cutoff
SD3 is user assignable. You may assign any CC to any parameter in the Play engine
