Greetings. I am having a bit of trouble from a sound design perspective with my TI2 on v184.108.40.206 and Cubase 8.5 Pro, Windows 10 Intel i7 PC, utilizing the Virus ASIO drivers and others. When I play in Live w/ my Virus, the sound is smoother with less harsh mids and highs. When I sequence and play-back without Live mode enabled, I get rigid transients and harsh tone. This variation in tone simply will not match my workflow. I have linked some samples at the bottom of this post.
This patch contains a simple Sine 1st oscillator and a harmonic 2nd oscillator. Unison at 5 voices, ring mod at max. Slight filter and amp attack, with short decay. Filter is LP and BS with Light saturation. No LFO's are synced. Matrix is off. Arp is off. Analog boost, Soft Bounce, Phaser, Vowel, and EQ are enabled. Reverb is Small Room. Parameters being sent to USB 1, no effects.
I have tried changing drivers, adjusting sample rate and clock source, changing parameters, disabling things in my signal chain, crying, screaming, and drinking rum. Again, please listen to the demos below and help me figure out what's going on! It seems Cubase and TI2 are not communicating effectively, and I'm not sure who is to blame.

Thanks for your help
