    probably your first thing to look at is compression and sidechain compression and also equing and layering drums so that you have separate highs and lows to work with. Side chaining your bass to your kick for example makes sure that every time your kick hits the bass level drops a bit to give your kick more room to come through. An example of layering might be to take two kicks and duplicate your pattern across both so they play the same thing make one a higher kick and one a lower kick (pitch) and choose which of those will carry the high end and the low end and eq the other frequencies out

    I understand what you guys are saying, but I'm sure there is a legal answer for this and I'm sure somebody knows it :)
    Probably if you are dealing with a lawsuit, your lawyer won't say "my client is right because he wasn't ashamed of using his sample".
