Speaking of drums, once interesting trick is to play a sound of a open hihat, and assign the envelope decay to the mod wheel. This way you can use the mod wheel to move between a closed hihat and open hihat sound. Not perfect, but gives some kind of feel.

For dynamics, it’s interesting to use pads that have some kind of swell effect, and you can vary that effect with some controller, either velocity, mod wheel or a pedal (which I’m using more these days.

With synths sounds there’s some interesting stuff that you can assign velocity to, other than just making it louder and brighter, so play around with that.
