That said, isn't super hard to replace. After doing the above, 'Mark Clip' your existing sequence clip to set an In/Out point in the sequence matching that clip's length, then press F to Match Frame. This will mark an In/Out in your source matching what you did previously. Then make sure your tracks are patched properly so only the new audio goes where you want and overwrite edit it in. Now your newly interpreted audio will be edited into where the clip was already.
