Logic Pro X Finger Snapping

I would like to use finger snapping as a percussion sound. I can set up a drum set for a high hat or some other drum set sound, but I don't know how to use the sound of finger snapping. Does anyone have advice on the best way to do this?

I made my own EXS24 instrument by recording a series of finger-snaps and then making overlapping keymaps so when each of 4 keys are played a different combination of my recorded finger-snaps plays, panned to fill the stereo field. I found if I used the same recorded finger-snaps every beat it sounded sampled and fake, and alternating randomly among the 4 keys ameliorates this.
