Default Hollywood Percussion "Cresc" sounds

I'm using Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Gold on a Win7 machine. I'm still learning the basics of EW sounds, and I'm using Finale 25 exclusively. (Yes, I know a DAW will be more user-friendly...but this is what I've got for the immediate future.)

The piece I'm working on is a wind ensemble piece, and so I'm using Hollywood Brass Gold, and Hollywood Woodwinds Gold as well. (And I'm relying on Garritan for saxophone sounds, since EW doesn't have a respectable saxophone sound that I've found...)

My question is this:
How do I create a crescendo roll on snare drum, sus. cym, and timpani?
1) Timpani and Sus. Cym. have "cresc" sounds as options, so that seems promising. But I cannot find a way to control the pacing of the crescendo, nor the max volume of it. They seem to be fixed, and that's not terribly useful. Am I missing something here?
2) Snare drum buzz roll crescendo? I can't figure this out at all. Any ideas?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!!

Hi Cairnsz

I seem to have snare drum crescendos on E2 F2 G2
And D2 has a continuous snare roll that I can MOD Wheel if I need a cool that's longer.

Hope that helps.

They all have a rolls articulation which is controlled with modwheel.
The timpani has a separate patch for it, while the snares have the rolls an octave above the hits (C2 and D2)
