  • Difference between Synchron-ized Special and something like Elite Strings

    Currently I only own the Symcronized Special edition V1 and am looking to expand in perhaps Volume 2. 
    One of the things I am looking for, is a smaller string section. I notice that I often use the solo strings from Volume 1 and duplicate these to get a small ensemble. 
    Volume 2 has a chamber string section which looks great. 

    I also am looking at the elite strings but want to fully understand the difference and, especially, if it's worth the price compared to Volume 2. 

    I know elite string is specially recorded while volume 2 is re-edited but what does that actually means from a quality perspective? 
    I don't really see much articulation differences between elite strings and Volume 2 (with Volume 2 plus).
