How do you mix Superior Drummer drums? Do you use built-in mixer, or you use 3d party plugins?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

I like to use my other plugins for compression and EQ with Superior Drummer. I tend to look at things like the SSL plugin and McDSP's set. They give me a lot more control over the compression and EQ which keeps me close to the way that I mix it live as well.
