Difference Between Apocalypse Elements and Full Version

Is the only difference between the two the extra mic positions? Or are there less drums? Within the instruments that are shared between the two libraries, are there less velocity layers / round robins? Is the elements version smaller sounding or lower quality sounding than the full version

I think the differences are the first two you say: one mic position and reduction of velocity layers and round robins, hard to say the details about the latter because they only say (from Soundiron site):
"Built from our grand 25GB flagship - the Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble - this Elements version is slimmed down to the put maximum punch into a compact footprint and unbeatable price for everyone. Focusing on a close/stage stereo mic position and standard single-stroke multisampled articulations, it’s designed to be intuitive and easy to play. This library also qualifies you for a 30% Discount on your future upgrade to the full Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble!"

Anyway, given that the articulations are the same AFAIK, and we know how many mic positions are in both versions, you can get a rough idea of the reduction of velocities/RR comparing the size.

The quality of the samples should be the same if Soundiron is an honest company.

:) Soundiron is indeed a very "honest" company, and is run by some of the best developers on the planet. Elements is a good place to start if you don't wish to invest heavily in APE before working with it. And the upgrade path means you really won't lose a lot if you eventually decide you want the full version.
