How do I insert a file from iTunes or wav files into a project?

I have files that were recorded elsewhere and I'd like to put them into Ableton project then create loops from them. How do I get them into the project without having to record them again directly into it?

    stick them in your samples folder and locate it in the browser, then drag it in. Your Browser has 6 buttons, 1 is Live Devices, 2 is plugins, 3 should be your Live Library. Use 4 and 5 both for your Samples folder. Locate Samples and right click, and select 'set as root'. Get to know the Browser and learn the shortcuts:

    You can also make custom shortcuts, see further down. In fact read all that page, it will save you loads of time.
