- Natural sounding drumkit (pop, rock, jazz ... there are samples, 
there's Hydrogen, but tweakable envelopes and tuning without sampling 
artifacts would make this interesting.
- Gated kicks and snares (think phil collins)
- Orchestra: timpani, triangle, cymbals
- Hip-hop / Lofi
- Industrial
- Amsterdamned kicks and matching snares for techno hardcore / gabber
- FX like gunshot, whiplash, breaking glass, earthquake
- a complete samba section

(will send some of my own patches in the coming days.)
