    If you want more snap you can try parallel compression. You bring underneath that snare copy which is compressed heavily just after the attack (snap).
    ALso make sure that the velocities of your snare are regular as this can create slightly different timbres from your SD3 and make you snare weak on certain beats depending on what's going on in the mix at specific points in time. IMHO.
