It Was Written:

"...what are the built-in sounds, if any?
where is "boing", "harpsichord"?
where is play "boing" tempo 200 "c4e c dq c f eh" ?..."

I believe those were files stored as "sound resources" (Mac only) that 
were resampled by HC.  To the best of my knowledge, you cannot use the 
same shorthand to play sounds in RR at different rates (but see the 
playRate property).
However, it might interest you to know that I have written some routines 
and a plugin that permit the construction and playback of MIDI files 
from within RR. In this manner, without having to store sound resources, 
you would have at your disposal the 128 General MIDI sounds, at any 
pitch or length, and in multiple tracks.  We should have these available 
in the near future.
