Then turn off the midi snare and record a real snare. And so on.

At each point, the drummer is free to do their own thing. When all is said and done we'll have real drums!

Because we do folk music, and the drums are often quite spare rather than the huge element of a rock band, I still have hope. But you might be right, MrBongo.
AFAIR drums at Joy Divison albums was recorded similar way. So you can try and look at the result - may be it will be suitable for you.
