This also sounds like a production/arrangement/sound-design issue. Yes, instruments do overlap some, and some complimentary EQ is an inevitable part of mixing. But chord voicings and arrangement are also a huge part of it. If a MIDI piano is muddy, and fighting with the bass, you could reach for the EQ; but you could also reach for the MIDI piano roll, and try moving the bottom note of the chords up and octave. Or the bottom two notes. More than once, I've found that to be the answer to what I though was an EQ problem. (See also: chord voicings on guitar.)
