Default Hollywood Orchestra Expression

1. Why does Hollywood Orchestra use "Expression" instead of "Velocity" for well..velocity?

2. What is the default Expression value that will be used unless I alter it?

1. It will depend on the instrument but the primary reason orchestral libraries use Expression in stead of velocity because a velocity can only set the volume at the start of a note where as string, wind and other instruments can change the volume throughout the playing of the note - expression lets you do this.

In addition to this, velocity often controls legato speed (Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds Legato velocity patches) or legato style (Hollywood Strings Leg Slur Port Bow-Change patches).
