Adding Pre-existing Material

There are several ways to importing an audio or MIDI file into a session:

  • Session > Import
  • Region List context menu: Import To Region List
  • Track context menu: Import Existing Media

These methods are all equivalent: they open the Add Existing Media dialog.

Finally, you can also easily import files into your project by dragging and dropping a file from some other application (e.g. your platform's file manager). You can drag onto the Region List, into the desired track or into empty space in the editor track display.
The file will be imported and copied into your session, and placed at the position where the drag ended.
