Yeah...  but only RX7 advanced has that tool. But with it and $1200 it will fix a lot of stuff.   ;)
They'll have a sale in a few months and you can get it for half.

I bought RX 7 Standard when it was on sale and Music Rebalance is included.

OK, perhaps RX7 has it. My RX6 does not. I stand corrected.
Only seeing two shows a month now...

Only advice you already thought of...try to pull down the highs/mids with the Equalizer...should at least downcrease the snaredrume a bit...listening to the sample the snaredrums sounds quite "bassy and full-on"...Also in "Cool Edit Pro (Audobe) there was a function called "equalize more music"...which downcreases the drums a bit (It does a calculated equalizer)...yet I´m sure you will get the same results if you do the equalizing manually too.

If I get some more ideas I´ll bring them on.

Good luck!

lacking Music Rebalance:

Mult a second copy of the source in parallel. 
Listening only to the copy, gate it so it sounds like drum hits only.
Reverse it's polarity.
Mix it with the original at whatever level reduces drums appropriately.   Tweak gate settings to see if any slight variation improves results.

If you ever need more drums, don't reverse polarity.

^That's a cool trick.

Lacking that or Music Rebalance (looking forward to trying that out sometime!), if going the compressor route, try a plugin which is specifically targets transient shaping which should better target the drums.

That is a very cool feature.
Does anyone know if there is anything similar in Adobe Audition?

can you guys rec some online tutorials for izotope (or compression settings in general)

this stuff is a little intimidating
in:
small: MK4V/41V > CMR > Tinybox or PiP Squeak or J.Williams Mod MicMan Jr or no pre at all >AD2K or R07
smaller: 4061 CORE > d:vice MMA

out:
home:Benchmark DAC1 HGC > Dynaudio BM15A active monitors
shop: Musical Fidelity VLink 192 Asynchronyous> coax> DAC1 > Rokit RP8 active monitors
