The problem is that the origin simply doesn't sound as good as arturias software equivalents and the polyphony makes it impossible to program a complicated patch and be able to play anything greater than one or two notes at a time. When I play arturias software synths I get inspired and the sounds are big and warm. The origin seems to be lacking. How can this be? It's very disappointing.
The polyphony is directly related to the complexity of the patch(es you are running. Using the Minimoog template in single mode, you can get a number of voices in between 12 to 16 depending on the settings. The 1st preset, P000, uses roughly twice as much CPU. So you divide the polyphony by 2. If you want to build a polyphonic sound by layering 4 polyphonic sounds similar to P000, then you end up wit a polyphony of 2.
Concerning the quality of the sound, could you be more specific? What are you comparing to what?
