I haven't used either so I obviously am not qualified to guess. I don't know how to describe it but the 2nd has a bit more "character" to it, sounds a bit "grainy" but in a good way (that's not really the right word). It seems slightly punchier.
At the end of the day, they are close enough for me not to care and use what I prefer.
I was going to say no.1 is the SP because of the presence of a tiny amount of extra bass. But, I change my mind. I think they're similar enough to have come from the same device. Further, everything I know about the SP sound (though I've never owned one) tells me that the distortion effect should be more extreme / obvious than that. Of course I could be wrong but it is my gut feeling that both of these clips came from Battery.
