Can we open a WAV file from within Ableton Live?

Post by Djard » Fri Jan 14, 2022 11:25 pm

I have a question that must sound absurd, but I found nothing about it in the manual. Is there a way to open an audio clip from within Ableton Live?

I realize that program is not primarily designed for editing audio clips, but surely a WAV or MP3 file can be opened, without drag & drop, which requires dual screens or minimizing the GUI, so that drag & drop is possible. Can someone lend me a hand?

You may need to add the parent folder to Places with the "Add Folder" button/link in the very bottom of Browser's left side.
