I take what fits and sounds right.
It is completely irrelevant if its a real instrument or synthesized in 
the first place.
In both cases sampling takes away some of the expression potential of an 
instrument. If its synthesized, you might get better results in using a 
synthesizer instead of a sampler, as you can controll the sound with 
Midi. You would also get better results if you can play the 
(acoustic)instrument, or have a friend play it...
But sampling also offers extensions to the original, mainly with 
synthesizer technology or massive layering...
