    SD3 will allow importing samples at multiple levels. Soft hits, hard hits, rimshot off the same instruments. The Tracker function is incredible and I rarely have to dial in the AI for reading even live drums. Really the only drawback to SP3 is it is quite expensive.

    The cheaper route is built into some daw. If you can convert to midi from a snare track for instance, you might have more work to get it clean but if you already own the software it can be worth the work. I know the method used by a lot of mixers was to use melodyne to convert to midi then that midi becomes a trigger track. The other “old school” method in pro tools is to snap to transient and hand paste a sample.
