the secret behind the hihats:
the obvius realisation would be a noisegenerator and a hipass filter, 
but this is it not.
They done the typical metallic noise by several heavy detuned square 
wave oscillators (maybe the actual circuit involved one osc and 
frequency dividers, would save some parts) mixed together and piped 
through a bandpass or hipass, its easy to patch in pd to emulate that 
sound although I didn't have a patch handy right now.
