How can i use effects for horrible sounds?

This guy made a horrible preset sound so much better.

I thought you had to search through presets in order to find a good sound. I didn't know you can ise effects on a sound to make it sound much better.

What is the action called for using effects to make a horrible sounding presets better? I think it's called " sound design" if i'm correct, let me know if i'm wrong.

That response alone might be relatable to telling someone to use bass STEM's if they want to make natural sounds sound good using Serum.

You do need to perform sound design, so yes, you are correct.

In "real" terms, people would take any sound and put it into any VST that allows them to import a WAV file into the wavetable, such as Serum and Surge (this one (and some others alike) has a wavetable mode, but it requires you to use an external app called Audioterm to convert the WAV file into a wavetable). However, thanks to the feature in the SubSynth, you can import a (single-cycle) WAV file into the wave editor in each oscillator.
