Anyone keep Logic Loops and FX in their music?

Anyone using Logic loops and sound FX in music? I have been working on moody soundtrack stuff, mainly with just the Logic internal software synths like EXS. Does it come off as unprofessional, or do you recognize stock sounds when you hear soundtracks/songs/commercials? I sometimes use the loops they give us but it occurred to me maybe they are meant to be unreleasable, just "for fun" not for using in final compositions ?

What does it matter if someone else uses a preset? If you like what you made, that’s all that matters.

Thanks for the input. I don't listen to music with the awareness of "they used this Synth/Sampler/Sample/FX here" but I know some people do. I remember back in the day when bands would go to extremes to get their unique sounds. First with the guitar gods, then you'd hear about synth bands making all their own drum tones or whatever. So I assumed maybe it's bad manners today to use the stock plugins, especially any type of loop or effect. I'm old fashioned

I watched a documentary on Netflix and recognized lots of naked Apple Loops!

Rihanna's hit 'Umbrella' was straight apple drum loop.....if it words it works, as stated they are royalty free...

Also Ushers hit 'Love In This Club' was a straight apple synth loop

Interesting topic.

I canceled my Splice and Sounds.com subscriptions because I felt that using pre-made loops wasn't really composing and was frankly, lazy. Recently I had a looming deadline to finish a score for a foreign documentary. I was only all too willing to grab pre-made stuff from wherever I could as d-day approached. My own hypocrisy is inversely related to the amount of pressure I'm under.

I definitely used an Apple drum loop or two... or three.
