Although I've had it for a bit now, I've only just gone through some of the presets. I find them a bit baffling, to be honest. The "subtle" folder holds presets that are anything but subtle, for example.
I can understand why someone who just flicks through the presets will be disappointed. They don't do a very good job of showing off what Trash can do. Then again, using presets for an effect that's so heavily dependent on the source material and the overall mix intention seems kind of pointless to me anyway, but your calorie intake may vary.
I like to see what others have come up with. But you're right distortion effects need to be tweaked to work with the incoming signal. Still there are so many ways to work with the various modules that there is much to be learned by studying the presets..
