Ardour doesn't open single audio files, it always operates on it's own sessions.

To open an existing sound file on disk, you need to open or create a new a session where you want to use that file. To do this, you can do one of the following:

  1. In Linux, you can drag the wave file from a file browser to a track or on the empty canvas to either add it as a region or create a new track for that file. (This does not work on OS X due to bad design by apple regarding X11 integration)
  2. You can use the Session->Add Existing Audio submenu to add files.
  3. Right clicking on the region list on the right of the canvas to open the import dialog.
