Lower the Topboard to 1.
Raise Low EQ to 10, Hi Eq to -3, MID 1 to +3, Mid 2 also +3.
Touch: Heavy. Voicing: Dynamic. Hammer delay:2.
String Resonance:8, Damper Resonance:3, Damper noise:5.
Reverb : Concert Hall. Depth 32, Time 3010ms.
EFX: Autopan, Type: Classic, Depth:24, Speed 0.79 Hz. The EFX Low Eq 0, High Eq 5.Key off eff: 5.
Fallback Noise 5.
The rest are the normal factory settings.

And try playing around with Hammer Delay. Factory settings for Hammer Delay are 1. But a Hammer delay of between 2 and 4, regardless if you're playing Pianissimo or Rocking may give you a pleasant surprise.

Maybe others on this Forum could add their settings or opinion on this subject. These are my personal settings and I'm still working to improve them. But they provide a starting point.
I started off with tips I got from others, added them together, input some of my own, and ended up with this.

A higher Damper Resonance will create a balooning or booming sound on the F3 note. That's why I lowered it to 3.
