If I were to conceive a rythm synth I'd look at ideas from 
voice synthesis. Not going for language or realism, mind you, 
but for something between the real and the robot. Vowels and 
gradations hardcore-grade.

Is Phil Collins high on the list? Not that I miss the sound. I 
mean, there's only 3 zillion samples of his snare around. And 
honestly: Industrial rythm from a synth is so pathetic. I saw 
"Einstuerzende Neubauten" once and after that the idea of 
someone trying to make a synth sound like them just never 
recovered. Plus the time seems to be over somewhat. But who am 
I to say, ignore me :)
