The instrument that plays back samples is called a Sampler.

Depending on the instrument/samples used and its settings, it behaves differently. You could have a drum kit where there are different drum samples played at one pitch on every key. Or you could have a simple instrument just just has one sample (say a guitar note) and the sampler will transpose the sample according to which key you play, so you can play it across the keyboard.

More complex instruments use a huge amount of samples to have different samples played depending on how hard you hit keys, or trigger different samples every time you hit a key to sound more natural, or even complex scripting.

There are many many samplers, both software and hardware, and most DAWs have a sampler as part of their included plugins.

At the beginning of making music, you don't have sufficient skill or experience to make judgement calls like this yet. This is part of the problem learning with *all* the tools available to you, there's simply way too much to learn at once.

And you certainly don't learn anything if you keep deferring learning and instead asking other people to solve these problems for you - particularly if you want to get to the point (commercially) where people are coming to *you* to solve *their* problems.

Only by making a lot of music can you start to understand whether you need to process/EQ/etc a given sound to fit in your mix... but I'd say if you don't know *why* you should change something, then don't change it (see my first point.)

As Desmond says: if you don't know why you're gonna do something, don't.

Unless you want to explore. Then do, listen, learn and most likely throw away.
