Yes, very much so… There are sooo many options for sound design, I’m not sure there is something it can’t synthesize. LFO at audio rate on pitchmod, Feadback osc, AM…list is pretty long. Not sure about demo’s tho
I don’t think this really fits with the genre you’re mentioning, but here’s the some of the grittyest sounds I’ve gotten out of my mki. The analog 4 definitely can do grit
(this track is 100% A4 played live)
Most of the demos on Youtube and such are usually more mellow styles like dub techno. The A4 (esp the mk2 with the enhanced distortion) is absolutely phenomenal for gritty and darker sounds. A couple short demo clips of stuff I’ve been working on - so you can hear what the A4 can really do.
Percussion and some textural/vocal bite samples (as you can hear) provided by Digitakt / Rytm. Everything else in the two tracks is unmastered and 100% Elektron boxes.
Yes, that FM-ish bassline is also from the A4, by modulating the OSCs with the high-freq tempo-synced LFO.
Also, in terms of glitchy stuff, the envelopes are very very snappy IMO.

How to destroy angels are one of my favourites. Digitakt can do a lot of killer gritty and glitchy sounds. The bit rate reducer on it rules. Plenty of sound design possibilities on the digitakt, not just a drum machine. A4 can certainly do dirty tones, it’s got a great overdrive circuit. Elektron gear is the way to go for what you want to do. Endless possibilities.
