Drum Editing Advice Needed Please

Hi everybody, I have a question for those of you who edit/slice/quantize drums:

I slice my edited drum performances and then quantize to the appropriate grid (usually 16th or 32nd note). This usually works great but the song I am working on now has drum parts that don't work with a 32nd note grid. Basically, if I quantise the audio with a 32nd grid about 85% of the drum performance sounds good but there are some parts that would need to be quantized to a 16th note grid.

I am dealing with 11 drum tracks (all in a folder) with multitrack editing on...

I was thinking I could use separate ''track versions'' to quantize the drums with a 32nd and then 16th note grid and copy and paste tracks from one track version into the other.

Besides doing this does anyone have any good tips for how to quantize one performance with different time grids!?

I would be very grateful!

Work in chunks. I'll chop up the drums in 8-16 bars across the whole song and then quantize those sections. If I get to a fill that's in triplets or a different grid setting I'll chop that section, change the grid for it, then change it back once I've quantized and move on to the next section. No reason to use multiple track versions for that.
