Don't we all want to sound good with the least amount of work involved? Why do we use DAW's? We could just use tape machine, and work like in the 70ies, if it was for the work involved to get a good result.
If you look into music history, all, really all sounds we think are good, had been made with a lot of effort. Of course you might think nowadays I just need to call up that good sounding preset, it sounded so good in that hit x. But, you missed the point in that case. If you redo the hit x, well there is no need for to do it again. If you create something else out of that preset, it sounds like a clone of hit x. Nobody needs that.
Ok, so why everyone significant in music history went for the best instruments possible then? That argument really makes no sense, and rows in with anything good old freeware fundamentalist layzer claims the whole time. Why do we need payware synthesizers at all then? Why is everyone who's big in the music industry always looks for that little extra piece of sound quality? Nah, that really doesn't make sense. At least not in the extent you want it to make sense. Of course you'll always fiddle to get the best out of your music. But, that doesn't exclude also buying the best gear to do so. Actually, it is a very good argument to do so, if you think about it.
