Strings were one of the first types of real instrument to get the sample treatment because at their most basic, they are quite easy to reproduce. Nuance, however, is a quite different matter. Even if you sample lots of velocity layers of a string sound to achieve greater depth and realism, you still come up against the fact that a piano keyboard – which most people will be using to play the sounds – isn’t played the same way a string section plays in real life.
