Mixing programmed drums with recorded intruments

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer questions again, Sylvia. Beginner hacks like me appreciate the insight and advice!

My band doesn't have a drummer, so I've been using Logic X's drummer to create all of the percussion. Do you have any advice or techniques on how to give sampled drums a more realistic presence in the mix, so it blends well with instruments that were recorded live?

This was down slapdash in ways that would make any engineer cry, but I thought it would help illustrate what I mean since it has live music but Logic X percussion:
