Balancing souls is the one thing we know for a fact that the soul king does not do in the least. The gotei 13 as a whole exist primarily for that purpose. I doubt the soul king is just a strong person though, we actually saw him. His appearance alone is indication enough that he is something quite different from a regular shinigami. Making souls and creating life does seem to be within his power though.
