Could you describe the kind of sound you are looking for, or perhaps post a link to an audio or video clip of the sound?  That way we can see what might be possible as far as getting the sound you want.

i just want someone to tweak the voices that i noted above to their liking so that i see which one better suits me. i eant the funcky ep to be more prominent, but at the same time not too sharp, and the dual voice to be warm. thats all.

Well, I guess I can give some general tips, based on what you're saying.  However, it looks like you are already doing much of what I would suggest.  To make the Funky EP more prominent, raise its volume -- but I see you've already made it louder than the dual voice.  But, you can try making it even louder and/or reducing the volume of the dual voice.  You could also try experimenting with the filter -- by slightly raising the cutoff and resonance levels (if you raise them too much, you might get too much of a twangy sound, but a minor adjustment may just bring out the sound the way you want).

I see you have the chorus and reverb both higher on the dual voice than the main voice -- I would try switching that.  Or at least increase the chorus and reverb on the main voice (without adjusting the dual voice).  I'd raise the chorus more than the reverb.  And, you might want to try different chorus types.  Which type of chorus are you using?  Sometimes the flanger can fatten up a sound, if you don't set it at too high of an amount.

Im using reverb hall 3 and chorus3 as chorus type

Okay, I usually Hall-3 reverb as well, as I think it is the same on my PSR-E433 as it is on your E443.  The E443 does have one extra chorus effect, however.  You may want to try a different chorus, or one of the flangers.  And like I said, you may want to try to boost the reverb and chorus -- especially the chorus -- on your main voice, regardless of which chorus effect you use.

Another thing to consider -- Something I've noticed on these keyboards is that when the reverb is turned up high, it seems to diminish the effect of the chorus, so if you want to bring out the chorus more, don't turn the reverb up too much.
