That's correct.

I think that info may well be out of date.  I don't have to use any form
of loop back (unless they refer to the internal MIDI routing as
loopback) when I'm working with external MIDI gear.

I was looking at this last night.  Basically a preset seems to consist
of setting the various assignable controls on the MIDI out plugin (the
ones above the auditioning keyboard) with appropriate names and to
control particular Control Change (CC) parameters for a particular
synth.  Seems weird to me that there is no way to create your own patch
list so that it shows something sensible and not just GM patch names.
