    As far as replacing with some WAV sample, if you are using Pro Tools, probably the easiest way would be the SoundReplacer AudioSuite plugin. The way to do that would be to duplicate say your inside kick drum track, then select the entire waveform for that duplicated track (consolidate first if the audio is broken into sections). Then select AudioSuite plugins / SoundReplacer and search on your hard drive for the sample you want, adjust the trigger level to get all the kick transients and reject everything else, then render the plugin. Once it is rendered, check to make sure it got all the kick hits properly throughout the song, then once you have verified this, move the sample track to where the transient and phase lines up properly with the original track. Now you can blend the original kick with the sampled kick to taste, and that is all.
