creating those kinds of rhythms is easy - always on the grid, always duple everything. check out seq~ and rate~ driven by a phasor~. rate~ will easily give you your Goa snare climaxes.
as for the synth/lead/bass stuff, try techno~ which can be pretty powerful, especially if you dont use the included jsui which is kinda tough to use.
other than that, any synth using lots of rect~ saw~ or tri~ oscillators and do your filter sweeps with a biquad~
max could be a good way to make this kind of music because unlike logic, you will be more free and not always know your self what to expect. then again, there are so many commercial apps totally built around approaching a genre like this (Reason is the best imo) that you should try to avoid simply rewriting those.
thank you for the suggestions. I have known some of them already. The techno~ is quite a nice object, I like to work with visual adjusters, like the jsui. But I will have to sort out how to get the messages in it, without the nice panel.
biquad~ sounds good, I am just about to add different sounds to it.
