My personal go-to for strings is to do repeated Pulse-width modulation. While it doesn't sound very realistic, it has a great sound.

Using the N163 sampler with moderately sized samples, mainly from SPCs or sampled tracker modules, is a good way to go; anything longer and you risk running out of space or reducing fidelity.

My favourite is 4 independent 48-sample instruments (also good for the 2nd overtone). If you do PWM you could have as well spared the VRC6 pulse channels for that.
