    NEED HELP Real Vs. Sample

    Below are two links. The first is a passage of music played by Garritan String Samples completely DRY. The second link is a recording of the SAME passage played by REAL performers with some Reverb.
    My question is: Please compare the two recordings. Does one of them sound out of tune? Or just poorly played? Your honest and straight forward answers will help me make some adjustments. Please be very honest and open minded. I would like to hear every opinion. There are no GOOD of BAD answers here.
    Thank you very much for your time and help.

    Sincerely,

    Well, link 1 hurts my ears. A bit screechy. Tone quality is in need of repair, particularly the upper register. Reminds me of the string section of a recreation orchestra that I filled in as pianist now and then. Never could figure out where we were because the strings sounded so shrieking. Then, as with this link, some intonation practice seems a strong requirement.

    In both cases, it strikes me that the upper voices are a trifle flat compared to the lower.
