A common technique is to lower the volume of the main sample but keep the kick at the same level. Then use remain with FX 12. This will duck the sample for some overcompressed sidechain.

Another way is to use distortion or bitcrushing to add to the fundamental.

If you have a tape recorder, bounce a hot signal to tape for dirty saturation

Been doing a quarantine beat tape entirely by doing this, definitely adds a dope crunch to the drums (especially kicks and snares) and compresses the whole track nicely as well.

Or I resample my drum loop to tape and back to SP, crunchy drums and now have a drum pattern resampled I can use. Using "cleaner" sample adds some contrast. Makes the drums stand out a lil more
