Wild guess: perhaps there are various parameters settings differences (in EXS/Sampler or Fx plugins)?

On my machine...if I load the "Bosendorfer Grand Piano" into MainStage i get different reverb presets in Space Designer. If I match the reverb settings in MainStage and in Logic I essentially get the same sounds.

It is a bit odd to see EXS24 in MainStage and Sampler in Logic, but that's OK...

Reverb is definitely "to taste"...
