The thought of a specialized synth for hammered percussion sounded great to me.
After downloading, I was initially a bit disappointed in the sound. Most of the noises that can be made sound like simple FM synth patches. You also can't get as much "clang" (percussive sound) as I would like, and the maximum decay time you can get is shorter than I think it should be, too.
After working with it for a while, I began to find sounds that I liked. You can make passable approximations of short, sharp sounds that naturally have a hollow sort of character (eg: marimba, xylophone). But to be happy I had to make myself stop thinking of "hammered percussion" and treat it as the electronic thing that it is. It's a nice counterpart to more typical drum synths and sounds good mixed in with electro-type drum sounds.
