While I dont think, that this is 100% the case, agree with you - there
are myriads of VST-synths that follow the stupid insulting "You do not
need to learn anything or to know anything - get our fine software and
click your hit with ease!"-philosophy. Thus the ongoing discussion in
the computer-music-scene about "How in the world can we achieve some
originality?" It is quite funny to read advices like "after you pimped
up a track with NI-plugs play it through 2 fender-guitar amps and record
this with microphones to avoid to let it sound the same as all the
10000+ other tracks out there pimped up with NI-plugins."

I think there must be a way in between if Linux audio shall gain a
relevant place in the music-scene. There is nothing wrong about having a
nice, intuitive interface to a versatile sound-modeling system. I never
managed to get c-sound working very good for me since I muster take the
time to learn a complex programming language to get some sounds. I use
Alsa Modular Synth, ZynaddSubFX, Specimen and modular patches routed
with jack to get what I want. MicroComputer is just great also.

Many think so but not all - I am quite sure, that musicians are ready to
adapt a free system, if they see, that it provides tools they need to do
what they want to do. Marketing brainwash like "you need software XY to
get a decent synth-sound" does work on a majority though....
