Ring modulation really lends itself well for percussive sounds in my opinion. Ring Worm is an alternate instrument for the QuBit Nebulae that incorporates ring modulation between a carrier and a modulator. Super useful for this kind of stuff.
Another important ingrediënt in this patch is the use of ratcheting. This principle is awesomely implemented in the Audio Damage Sequencer 1. When used in some kind of random fashion, I think it really helps to convey a sense of ad lib improvisation.
This post is pre dated. One of the purposes of this website is to put all my musical productions into one place. In order to get my archive more or less accurate, I chose to date stuff that was produced before the launch of this website at or around the time they were originally published.
