Hmm, interesting point. But first, how exactly would that work? There's no uniform level difference between the two tracks. To have turned down the levels on the the Pro version to account for occasional moments where the close mics are louder than the tree would have recessed the outriggers and reduced their contribution to the sound.Hate to be that guy but you didn't level match
And there are certain passages on either the left or right channel that differ, based on the inclusion of close mics at times. I can’t see a straightforward way to level match these for those reasons.
And secondly, you know that some people would have complained had I messed with the levels on one track and not the other. As a result, I've deferred to CH/Spitfire’s decisions on mixing and mastering both tracks.
Anyway, take it for what it is. I hear spatial differences, and proximity differences outside of levels differences. I think anyone listening will have to interpret the reasons why one sounds different than the other and decide what effect that has on the quality (not just quantity) of the sound.
I found this A/B comparison sufficient to make my decision about upgrading and am downloading the new content as I type this.
