how to? to make my tracks more textured, instead of using fx like vinyl
Keep distorting a sample.

Bitcrusher with, or without, distortion.
Bitcrush it, but play with all the knobs to get a more interesting and tuneful sound

Depends on whether you want sampled or synthesized. If you want synth glitch sounds do what Andy and Rob said and use distortion and or bitcrush. If you want sampled well that is easy too. Just take a file any file really (well except for mp3s, they usually give pretty boring results) and change the file extension to .raw. Then use a program that can open .raw files and save them as wav (if you are on Windows this will likely be Audacity and on Android this will be Droisound E, not sure about Mac or iOS) and then save it if you like the sound. After its saved load it up in the PCMsynth. I should point out though that if you're going to be making the files on Droidsound that there is a minimum save length of 10 seconds, if you don't want a 10 second sample you will have to cut it in Caustic's wav editor.
There is a cool app called 8-Bit Buckaroo on Android that can create a lot of glitch sounds.
It is for free and no ads. Does not have a recording to wav though so my recommendation is to record into something and then take your time and cut up the best glitches and then build PCM instruments in Caustic full of glitches that can be used.
It is some work but the glitch instruments that gets made is forever! Plus that they are possible to manipulate further in Caustic and even possible to tune the different glitches directly in the PCM synth.
This is the time the night and the year
Just learn to use a 8bit synth :)
Try the C-SFXR, tinker around, and you'll likely find what you want. Add the above-mentioned methods, and/or some timestretching. Or use the modular synth machine input or vocoder to add a ridiculous amount of effects.

BitCrush, then TimeStretch it......severely, then TimeStretch it back to before..... it will sound nice and nasty
@Jason that's exactly what I do :D I often do this with sounds recorded in my everyday life like for example a door getting closed or whatever - it's incredible what kind of of sounds you can get with those as a base ;)
Its also cool to take short percussive sounds and RubberBand them to 400%....
