How do you replace live (mic'd) drums in Ableton Live 8?

I currently have a project where I tracked live drums and the band is wanting to have them replaced with Superior Drummer. Is there a way to do this since I have tracked the drums with mic's already? How do you go about that without having to replay everything in Superior Drummer by hand?


Thank you!!!

    i believe you would have had to use a DAW and record the drums with a "trigger" that you would,later,correspond to the appropriate sound in Superior Drummer. Dont think you can take an audio file (thats not MIDI) and replace the sounds to a MIDI sample.
