Snare replacement (Drumagog) quandry

Question for all you amazing mixing wizards out there. Mixing down 5 songs for a band right now and the snare sound is just not happening. I am using Drumagog to replace the snare sound but the original sound is coming through the overheads so much that the replaced sound ends up about a 50/50 blend.
Overheads are somewhat vital because hi-hat was not mic'd and only coming through overheads at this point.

Any ideas besides re-tracking?

Duplicate the overhead tracks & gate so the snare opens the gate and closes after, use sample replacement on this to get more of the sampled snare and less of the original. Use EQ on the original overheads to take out as much of the snare as you can. And boost at around 10KHz to get some shine on the overheads.

Or, rather than gating, duplicate the overheads and chop the audio so only the snare is left in, then flip the phase on the chopped track and it'll drop the snare out, leaving just your sample snare.

This thing Wavesfactory Plugins | VST AU RTAS for Mac and Windows or something similar. Works better than regular ducking.

Use the original snare to control the sidechain.

Awesome suggestions guys. I was reading about auto-ducking in Drumagog but looks like that doesn't come in the Basic version.

I do some live recording and usually use 3-4 drum mic's.

Sometimes a compressor on the overheads works.
Feed the side chain from the snare track. Don't use make up gain so it acts as a ducker. Every time the snare hits it will reduce the volume in the overhead/s. multi-band comp would prob work best to zero in on just the snare freq's without effecting everything else.
