SFZ 2 header which should come before ‹global› in the file, and can contain the following special directives, which should not be used under other headers:

Multiple ‹control› headers can be used in one file, and this can be very useful when specifying default_path. This path will then be used for all regions until another ‹control› header is encountered. Whether settings other than default_path should also be reset by a new control header is not entirely clear. As implemented in ARIA, a new control header resets default_path only and not other control settings, and this does not seem unreasonable.
