    Hi Mark,

    Have you tried using a gate? A properly set gate can control bleed very effectively in most cases. You could use that in conjunction with your sidechained compressor to get rid of the majority of it. If that doesn't work, you could edit all but the tom hits out of the waveform, that is tedious, but effective. Volume automation could be another way. Hope this helps!
