On each stem use eq and remove only the frequencies that correspond to THAT stem. For instance on the stem for the highs use a eq and remove all the Lows, Low Mids, and Mids. Leaving only the high frequencies for that stem. Do all the stems like this.
Vocals will usually sit in the Low Mids area so use a sidechain to duck the Low Mid Stem so that when the vocals play the low mid stem will duck and the vocals will cut through the mix. This will essentially cause the vocals to sit in the mix better giving the perception that the vocals were recorded in the same session. Be sure to use a stereo bus compressor on the master bus to gently glue the entire mix.
