That means using old sounds/new sounds, whatever. If you must follow the leaders and make exactly what's hot now, the synth is more than capable of producing whatever sound it is that you want.
Clearly if you don't care for presets then the criticism is not relevant to you. But that's hardly a logical reason to argue against the criticism.
I'm not saying I don't use presets - I do. What I was meaning to get at is it's not really reasonable for people to slam certain genres of packs just because they might not make that style of music. Sure, someone can say 8-bit isn't all the rage right now, but it doesn't mean that there aren't paying customers out there who do make it. There clearly are. As someone else said - they'll keep cranking these expansions out. It's just a matter of time before there's something for everyone.
All that being said, I personally find the packs to be fairly expensive for me, but it just means I'll have to seriously consider which one's I'll buy.
