I post my "Walker" quartet for you to compare live performance sound to sampled sound.
- Live performance: 2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello. 2 microphones, live in a small room. All musicians play simultaneously. Performed in December, 2013 in Vermel club, Moscow. Unfortunately, quartet was replaced three days before the performance and musicians had almost no time for rehearsal. This is why there are some shortcomings in the performance, but generally it is ok.
- Sampled performance: East West Orchestra Library (Platinum XP). Solo samples were used.

This string quartet consists of 11 parts. Each part is created in a specific style and all parts are connected with transitions. Most styles go in a historical order.
Below are two videos with the same music (live sheet music and piano roll).
The idea was (time for youtube and sampled audio):
