Soundreplacer is ridiculously common these days and I don't think it has anything to do with comparing programmed drums to a live kit. 90% of recordings have samples mixed in with the drums. If someone is COMPLETELY replacing stuff, it's not easy to get right. Sample supporting is where it's at. It's when you bring up a sample behind the live track and blend them to sound as one.
