I think all of the instructors here use the same way: create a MIDI track in your sequencer (for example Cubase), and apply some sound samples to it (strings, horns, flutes, etc.). It is way too simple biggrin.gif In MIDI track you program or play/record with your keyboard what you want the samples to play and that's it smile.gif
