eno is arguably one of the most important 10 producers in the world,
certainly in terms of influence if not in terms of absolute record
his work with U2 and more recently coldplay is just a minor part of
the immense impact he has had on contemporary music. his entire style
of working is a continual denial of almost everything you are
claiming. it doesn't render your point invalid - presets are
incredibly useful and for some people, they are actually essential.
but it also serves as an indication that you can make phenomenally
popular and occasionally rather innovative music in ways that are
based around constantly trying to find the fastest way to get "the
sound". there's room for everyone under the big tent of music, and no
single road to goodness, fame or even fortune.
