There are numerous examples of filters that can not do this and just sound bad , but also numerous examples of synths that can do it and sound really good.
As there are guitarists who can use phasers and sound not-so-good.
I found over the time so far, that sounds by themselves do not mean as much as sounds in context. I was surprised to discover that sounds that are not sounding so good do sound very good when in context.
I also found that really good sounding sounds are very much demanding at the mixing stage, like pulling the blanket on their side. There's a need to make way in the mix for all those nice sounding bits of a rich sound that sounds so good when played on its own. In other words, they are so rich that they do not blend with common sounds so well.

Not sure what your "this" refers to exactly in the text, although as far as I'm concerned, as one who has asked for an example, the understanding is rather simple: learning. Learning and trying to leverage the forum to ask for pointers. Fortunately, someone sent me an example in PM. In this exchange here, I am not sure if it is proper to name the person, unfortunately.
Speaking of examples, what Exponent1 has asked for here, are examples of your music. You have finally replied with other's music. If there are copyright issues that prevents showing music you have created, just say so, no problem. Or perhaps you are a well-known sound designer that do not want to be associated with this thread.
Otherwise I think I would have learned from hearing your material.
