Oscillators on init patch sound weak

1 month 2 weeks ago #1 by branch
Noob question, so apologies in advance if it's already been answered.

Just got a Blofeld and I followed along to a few Youtube tutorials to get cracking. On all the videos, when the Youtuber initializes a new patch and demos the sawtooth wave, it sounds bright and with plenty of low frequency content. On my Blofeld, I initialize a patch, and when I play with the sawtooth (osc 2 and 3 are off) it lacks volume and sounds like its low frequencies are attenuated.

I'm a sound designer with a novice to intermediate skill level. I looked at the filters to make sure they aren't attenuating anything, and found no issues there. I experimented with increasing the filter drive, but that introduces harmonics and distortion that I don't want on a clean sawtooth.

Would the Youtuber be Mark Pigott?
I know him personally!

On the Init patch, most everything is reset, and the filter fully open.
You can disable the filter as well.
But I never had an issue with the init.
