In both the pieces, I\'m hearing some sort of wierd looping effect in the long sustained notes, almost like the way a warped record sounds. Regardless, the legato transitions between notes are much better on #2. On #1 I can hear the separation between notes very clearly and it sounds like some sort of excessive filtering is going on at different velocity levels. #2 sounds much smoother, although not perfect, and is the one I prefer.
I like #2 much better also, but they both sound kinda weird. On #1 the lower frequencies are too pumped up (and the legato isn\'t there). Legato is nice on #2, but there\'s that pitch wobble, almost sounds like \'wow\' on an LP (except I don\'t think the rate is 33 1/3 wpm - wobbles per minute).
