This is the good old Mix Mode effects problem. This comes up every couple of weeks so here goes again.

In Mix mode you can have up to 16 instruments defined for a sequence - the problem is that Mix Mode supports only one set of effects - and you can edit the mix and define which channel's effects to use. This effect is then used on all active channels in the mix - the end result is that one or more of the programs used in the mix will loose their original effects (which you hear in Program Mode) and use the one set of effects for the mix. Sometimes this is OK and sometimes it really makes things sound really bad.

You can play around by using different instruments for your sequence or perhaps change which channel's effects will be used for the mix - but that is about it. Search the archives for more detailed discussion on this topic.
