An articulation with a short attack followed by a crescendo

A setting that allows a note to slide from its current pitch to the pitch of the next note played
A brass articulation that has a long volume fade
What does ADT stand for?
Automatic Double Tracking
Automatic Double Tonguing
Assisted Divisi Template

What is another name for ‘Tam Tam”?
How do the timpani libraries make rolls easier?
The rolls are time-stretched to match the session tempo
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
The roll can be saved as a MIDI file to be used in a DAW
How many mic positions were used to create the Stormdrum 3 library?
3: Close, Mid, and Far
4: Close, Stage, Hall, and Surround
2: Decca tree stereo and close mic
5: Close, Mid, HiFi, Main, and Vintage
What was the name of the producer that Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix teamed up with on the Hollywood Strings library?
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
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 has a metal water jug with spikes coming off of it. It is played by bowing or striking the spikes
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
What is WordBuilder?
Wordbuilder is a synthesizer built on formant synthesis.
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 uses spectral synthesis to playback speech patterns.
What is the advantage of using the FX version of the Dark Side instruments?
The FX versions of the instruments are used to create interesting cinematic sound design for film
Switching back and forth can create an interesting zippering effect, and that can be bounced to disk for effect
The effect version of the instrument is usually lower in memory usage
When switching between the FX processed and unprocessed instruments, the samples are common amongst the instruments, so the load time is very fast
How do accents work in the Hollywood Strings library?
Accents get their own articulation and instrument
There is a staccato or marcato articulation that plays layered at the beginning of the sustained or legato string articulation
Accents are used in the performance script section to add influence to the beginning of a given sound
Accents are a volume spike that is applied at the front end of samples
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 effect created by wind blowing over the strings
It's an effect that is achieved by lightly tapping the instrument with a soft mallet
It is an articulation that is made by the bending of harmonics created on the string
What does ‘H’ and ‘W’ mean in the woodwind trills?
Half-tone and Whole-Tone
Hurried and Wait
Half-cent and Whole-cent
High and Wide
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
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.
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’ 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
Tuning ‘A’ is microtuning, and Tuning ‘B’ is traditional western tuning
Why does the Powerful System have its own folder?
The powerful system is just the system file. It’s the engine that the EWHS is running on
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 an algorithm that uses advanced core threading to get more efficiency for the CPU
The powerful system is very CPU heavy and requires more overall system resources than any other articulation in the library
What is an example of an effect articulation for the woodwinds?
Trill, cluster, Run, flutter tongue
Bop bop a lu bop bop bam boom
Doit, shake, minchamba, and bubble mute
Shake, doit, smear, and ‘san cuerpo’, or ‘without body’ (Ligature only)
In Hollywood Strings, what does NV NV VB MV mean?
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
It means that the instrument can have No Vibrato, Vibrato, and Molto Vibrato played via velocity
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?
Have a Play instance on the master bus and route all MIDI there
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
Use keyswitch instruments instead of having multiple tracks per articulation
What are the different mic positions in the EWQLSO?
Mid, close, and far
Mid, Side, and ambient
Top, Bottom, and room
Close, Stage, and Surround
What is the difference between ‘Master’, and ‘Elements’ libraries?
Master’ controls all of the articulations of Play as a whole, allowing for the changing of parameters easily across multiple instrument types
‘Master’ uses the master output of the Play mixer. ’Elements’ has automatic assignment to individual outputs
‘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
What is a special way that the Play engine can speed up load times?
You can have multiple Play engines loading sounds concurrently
Play can load sounds into RAM from a virtual cloud
Play uses CAF files to store Lossless encoded files for playback in real-time
Play uses data compression to play instruments before they are loaded
