How to sample audio exactly how I'm hearing it from live?

So I really like live's clipping/ limiting on my drums.  Currently I'm working on a kick and have purposely put it to redline in both the track and the master, and it adds a lot of nice colour, but also carries the bass in a way none of my limiters can.  The problem is that when I try to sample it (by exporting audio/ recording to another track/ resampling etc.) and put it back in live so that I can adjust the volume so that it doesn't mess up the rest of my mix, the quality I'm looking for doesn't translate, it just sounds distorted.  It sounds good still, but doesn't pack that same punch.  Of course, it's going to be quieter, but even when I turn up my monitors, the sound quality just isn't there.
