in a live drumming situation obviously all the reverbs of all the hits would mix in the room. The ability of the room to react to all this sound would be limited and the ring outs would 'mix together' rather than 'pile up'

I used to trigger a lot of samples and I found the accumulation of reverb tails in really long samples to be too 'linear'. It's not just the amount of reverb, it's the way each reverb tail just lies there on top of the previous one - with no 'blending', no 'interaction'.

you can usually set your sampler to cut off at the onset of the next hit, (how 80's!) or maybe mess with the decay of the one-shot.

I would re-record the samples much drier and add reverb later.
