The only advice anyone can give you is to keep experimenting until you find the sound(s) you like.
A good method for getting your ears acclimated to what the mid controls do is to set a fair amount of boost and listen to the difference as you change the frequency. Then do the same with a fair amount of cut. After a while you'll be able to quickly dial in pretty much any sound you want.
