right click in the track - insert existing audio - browse the file - import.

otherways, menu-session-add existing audio.

there are more options in the 'add existing audio' dialog, but the default should work.

cheers,
doc

there is a option in the import dialog called 'probable audio files'. try to change to 'all files' than you should see all files in the folder.
be aware of it, that ardour want import mp3's.

cheers,
doc
