He had a Roland R-8 early on (including the SN-R8-04 card for TR-808 samples, and Simmons tom as on Green Calx). At least, that's what I'm inferring from what DRN said. So perhaps the acoustic samples are from that too, distorted a little, with reverb from the QuadraVerb? I'm not sure, they're not the most interesting sounds he's used... I know he used the VCS3 a fair bit during the ...ICBYD/Ventolin era, I think for things like ring mod... And he'd do things like flange white noise, probably with the QuadraVerb... And he said he sampled hitting an ammo box from the inside with a wireless mic, if memory serves... Though for nice metallic drum hits, personally I like sending a brief burst of noise to a spring reverb... Things like ring mod can work well too... He also sort of confirmed using an aerosol as an open hat, like in S'Express. Just think laterally and you'll do fine. That's all I have off the top of my head right now.
I briefly had a QuadraVerb the other year, and you know what? It was just regular effects, awkward to program through a fiddly menu. It's not the equipment you use (or only to a certain extent, at most). Work out what weird things you can do. SAW 85-92 still sounds great, and that used TR-808 samples, not the real thing, and was premastered to Compact Cassette. Make do with what you have, be creative. Otherwise it's a cargo cult emulating the specific examples of another person's lateral thought.
