    ... Snares, Congas, and Bongos are a bitch to filter out... Unlike kicks, they have most of their sound in the mids and upper mids... which is exactly where the rest of the other sounds are...

    You're better off replaying, or leaving that stuff in and working w/ it..

    honestly if your looping and sample and the drums are that noticeable, you may be a little too recent, cuz only during the 80s did RnB songs n shit start mixing drums like how we mix them today
    ive had to filter drums out...less than 10 times my entire beat making career, cuz most shit from like early 80s back has drums mixed low anyways, or theyre easy to work around

    you can cut out the snares and or congas when choping the sample.

    If you are using the sample as a loop you can cut out the snare in cogas using the"silence"
    feature, then time strech the sample to fill the holes, add a touch of reverb to smooth the sample out.

    Best I could suggest is playing your drums over the stuff that's popping, if possible.
