mixing odd samples used in drumkits

i often make a song that becomes flushed together mix wise with samples in my drums especially if i add like three distorted hoover basses with very thick phasers and chorus.  When i experience this i usually set a machine just for the samples then depending on the effects i want to use, i might then run the samples thru a modular effects bus adding filters to shape the samples to fit in the mix without the heavy bleed effect into other instruments, ive also found that if you want to add alittle umphth to your drums add a low pass or low band on the drum modular bus this can be used to mimic a low frequency sub without adding more bass instruments to the mix this is handy for a simple way to have sub follow tempo, usually if i have clean gated samples i dont experience this problem, its mainly on samples that cut a song and contain voice because i modulate it very heavily, then if it bleeds im already thinking i need a break from this song for a few hours or days so your hearing recovers sensitivity and everything doesnt sound like a huge mess.

Well the cool thing now with

Well the cool thing now with the ability to stamp effects on any sample in let's say the PCMSynth, is that you can set up and customize effects on anything you want and keep them all on one synth machine, leaving the other 13 available for whatever else you need.

Applied stamped effects = less stress on CPU allowing headroom for other functions and synth machines.....
