Seasons greetings fellow ArgyllCMS users

Could someone provide recommendations on how to tweak the ArgyllCMS profiling process to open up shadows for printed output? Using Windows 7, ArgyllCMS 1.6.3 and printing to a Canon IPF6350 with genuine OEM inks on various matte paper (Epson, Canon)

I have calibrated / profiled my dual monitor setup so they are a very close match to each other. The three-quarter-tones to shadow areas printed on matte paper are maybe 1 - 2 f-stops too dark compared to the screens. Printing the same image on photo glossy paper is much better (roughly 1/2 f-stop too dark in that region).

Results from ArgyllCMS / ColorMunki and ArgyllCMS / Pulse DTP20 printer profiles produce very similar results.
