AMBER: replica exchange simulation

Dear Amber Users:
    I have one question on the replica exchange simulation. Can you give
me the answer? Many thanks in advance.

Suppose there are N replicas (1,…,M,….N) in replica exchange simulations.
The replica M corresponds to the temperature of interest, i.e. we want to
compute the thermal averages for the replica M simulated at the temperature
TM. Usually, each replica is simulated using canonical ensemble. Is it
possible to replace canonical simulation in one of the replicas, say n
(1<=n<=N, but n≠M), with microcanonical simulation without violating the
canonical distributions in other replicas, including the replica M?
