    Yes, and my friend Richard Hilton raves about the new (a few years ago) Roland piano plug-in because it emulates the interaction of the strings. The same applies to a sampled string section, though...

    I'm sure the Sound Forge programmers decided it's not worth wasting CPU cycles to apply low-pass filter curves just for the waveform display. But by and large, what you see is what is in the file.
