It helps to add an EQ with a wide dip in the mid range but I think the sound quality should be improved.
This is true of all Live
synths I think, so should perhaps be expected.
I'd like to point out that many third party instruments have aspects present that Live
instruments can gain by using audio effects, native or not. There's a reason many of the presets for Live
synths come with effects, rather than these being built-in into the synth itself. A third party synth may have imperfections and enhancements made right into the plug-in.
instruments you need to add these imperfections and enhancements yourself. Saturation, Reverb, Delay and so on added in an consciously imperceptible way adds up to the complete sound. Audio effects are also part of sound design and do not have to be obvious. Look at how Tom Cosm
presents sound design in Ableton Live
. He has the right approach.
