See, that is *exactly* what is wrong with the Windows world of music. 
Some of us remember the Bad Old Days of the mid-80s, when every second 
track you heard on the radio entirely consisted of standard Linn drum 
samples and factory DX7 patches.

I don't know about anyone else, but I almost never use factory samples, 
with the notable exception of the strings and piano samples for my 
Ensoniq Mirage.  Everything else is created from scratch.  Well, maybe I 
nick the odd breakbeat, but even at that I'd prefer to sample it myself 
so that any treatments fit correctly around the track I'm working on.
