What is the difference between ‘Master', and ‘Elements' libraries?
‘Master' is all of the articulations switched by velocity. "Elements' are the beginning, middle, and end of the samples, chosen with CC2
Master' has all of the articulations mapped to a keycap, ‘Elements' loads the articulations, but does not activate them
‘Master' uses the master output of the Play mixer. 'Elements' has automatic assignment to individual outputs
Master' controls all of the articulations of Play as a whole, allowing for the changing of parameters easily across multiple instrument types
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
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
Play uses CAF files to store Lossless encoded files for playback in real-time
What are the 3 languages of WordBuilder?
German, Italian, and Russian
English, Phonetics, and votox
Russian, Latin, and Greek
Russian, Latin, and German
Why would you use a script sim?
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 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.
What is ‘double-tonguing'?
It is a way of stopping a brass instrument with the tongue to create a muted sound
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 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
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
Why does the Powerful System have its own folder?
The powerful system is an algorithm that uses advanced core threading to get more efficiency for the CPU
The powerful system is a series of instruments that are designed specifically for overblown movie productions - like a Michael Bay movie
The powerful system is just the system file. It's the engine that the EWHS is running on
The powerful system is very CPU heavy and requires more overall system resources than any other articulation in the library
Which controller assignments are unique to SD3?
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
SD3 uses aftertouch to control the filter settings, and velocity to adjust the timing of rolls
What does ‘EXP' mean in a Hollywood Woodwinds library patch?
Aftertouch is used to get more vibrato out of the instrument
Mod Wheel should add dynamics as well as vibrato
Expression is added to the instrument with CC10
The instrument was recorded in an expressive way with vintage microphones
What is WordBuilder?
WordBuilder allows the composer to create phrases for the symphonic choir to sing.
Wordbuilder uses a combination of physical modeling and granular synthesis to generate speech.
Wordbuilder is a synthesizer built on formant synthesis.
Wordbuilder uses spectral synthesis to playback speech patterns.
What does ‘On Bow' mean?
The bow is flipped upside down and played with the wood
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's horsehair is bowed with another bow to create an effect
What does ‘SUS 6' mean in a string ensemble?
It means there is a chord being played with a suspended chord with a 6 in it
It means there are 6 articulations loaded
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
In Stormdrum 2, what is the purpose of the ‘Zendrum' settings?
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 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
The Zendrum settings adhere to the tuning and timing methods of ancient Tibetan traditions.
What areas of the globe is Gypsy representing?
It is a collection of instruments from Ecuador and the surrounding area.
The southern united states.
Gypsy is a representation of instruments popular among the roaming Roma, or Gypsy, people.
What is a way to free up track areas in your main window?
Have all articulations summed to a single bus in your mixer
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
Have a Play instance on the master bus and route all MIDI there
Use keyswitch instruments instead of having multiple tracks per articulation
What external controls work with the EWQLSC library?
CC25, CC26, aftertouch, and CC90
Bank MSB changes, LSB changes, CC20 and aftertouch
CC70, CC71, Aftertouch, and CC27
Mod Wheel, CC11, CC7, and velocity as well as CC20 for restarting a phrase
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 is ‘microtuning'?
Microtuning is a way of setting Play to several different concert pitches like 432 Hz and 415 Hz
Microtuning is a way of manipulating the formant shift of an instrument
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 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
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
What controller should you always try with East West libraries?
How many mic positions were used to create the Stormdrum 3 library?
3: Close, Mid, and Far
5: Close, Mid, HiFi, Main, and Vintage
4: Close, Stage, Hall, and Surround

What is David's favorite instrument from the Gypsy library?
What does ‘Legato MOD' do exactly?
The Mod Wheel is used to create a volume crossfade between samples
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
What was the name of the producer that Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix teamed up with on the Hollywood Strings library?
What is the main purpose of Goliath?
Goliath is a sample library of huge stringed instruments that are slightly over-sized
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 library of gargantuan drum sounds that is used primarily for orchestral, cinematic works
