I post two simple and short minimalistic string quartets for you to compare live performance sound to sampled sound. This is not an outstanding performance and not the best sampling, but I find it very useful for comparison.
I would be glad to hear any comments, especially some criticism.
- Live performance: 2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello. 4 microphones, live in a small room. All musicians play simultaneously. Performed in January, 2013. Introduction was not performed live in Falling from the window.
- Sampled performance: East West Orchestra Library (Platinum XP). Solo samples were used for Silent Hints. Group samples (18 violins, 10 violas, 10 cellos) were used for Falling from the window.
