Adding third party samples to library

Sorry . . . need some assistance, please. I can't see anywhere in the reference material about how to actually add third-party samples that are NOT part of a live pack to Live 9. With Live 8 one could drop them straight into the samples folder, or create a new folder and drop them there. Doing the same in Live 9 seems to give a folder (with no samples in the folder). 

The only place I seem to be able to put a folder of new samples is in its own folder under PLACES. Which is not what I'd like to do ....

There must be a simple way of doing this, but it doesn't seem to be covered in any of the reference material.

 

Thx.

    You want to drag & drop to: User Library -> Samples -> Imported. This will copy them into your Live library, at which point they will they will also show up under "Samples".

    Note that this creates a physical copy of anything you import, so unless you delete the originals you are effectively doubling the space usage of your sample library!

    Personally, I just add my third-party sample folders to "Places". I haven't found any real drawbacks to doing it this way.
