I agree with Arthur. I mostly add one, sometimes two snare samples to the drumkit. Reason being: I really like a snare that has that typical (rimshot) ringing. I only use a second sample to trigger a (gated) reverb, so no direct sound. Keep in mind that if you layer 6 different snare samples, the real snare probably will sound artificial. That doesn't need to be a problem per se on beat2 and beat4 but all the blue notes will sound artificial too.
