Sampling is a great time-saver for getting "great" sounds. Why generate them when you can lift them instead?
That string patch sounds a bit like it might be their attempt at the legendary Yamaha GX-1 string sound (i.e. "Village Ghetto Land" by Stevie Wonder). Who knows, it might even be a sample of it.
For live use, if I can find the money I'll buy one of those fanless nano-ATX or micro-ATX mobo's, put it in a box with a couple knobs and buttons and maybe that 2x64 LCD I have sitting around in the garage, and set it up at boot time to run a couple fluidsynth instances with the sounds I use most often on it, and there's my "hardware" synth. Thus I won't have to bring my laptop to gigs and sweat over where to place it, how to keep it safe from getting knocked over or drinks spilled on it, how to get the hell off the stage faster to let the next band go on, etc.
