Yeah, just look at how CasioChord ruined everything. Oh, wait, it didn't.
If anything, tools that make the basics easier raise the bar for the true artists, because they can spend their talents on the truly difficult parts rather than get bogged down with the mundane.
Sure, it also increases the pool of participation, and yes, you'll get a lot more of schlock in there. Just as high-level languages and app-builders allow plenty of people who have little business writing software to produce some truly horrid code and ship it, many of these same tools allow experts to focus on the truly difficult bits rather than get bogged down in unnecessary noise. Very few of us program in machine code any more.
