For some instruments, creating the patch or sound is
considered part of the art of playing them.
Its not only synthesizers. I pity guitarists, that really think, they
can make a recording worth hearing while they do every click to sound
exactly the same as $your_favourite_guitar_hero. To find the perfect
sound for the band and for oneself is an epic fight with combining
different guitars, strings, modifications(picups etc), amps, FX-boxes
and playing itself.
And: oh wonder! lo and behold: picky listeners tend to prefer those who
fight that fight to the end. And the picky listeners are those who
really go to concerts, buy records etc...
Again: presets are not "evil", if they are used as a starting point to
make something individual and to demonstrate the capabilities of a
software, they are absolutely important.
But to demand 200 leadsynth-presets including ready-to-play sounds as
used on the most cool top-20 CDs this year from a distribution of a
softsynth before considering the synth a "professional usable" one is silly.
