There are several methods you can use to import audio, be they whole stems or loops, into a project. The first is to just drag and drop them from a Finder window directly into the work area of Studio One. There's also the option to automatically stretch imported audio and loops to the project tempo, and you'll see how to use this feature in the video.

Another option is to use the DAW's built-in Browser to access the dedicated Loops tab. From there you can audition loops, drag and drop them in with tempo auto adjustment if required, and edit. Once you have learned how to import audio and loops, be sure to check out the rest of the course for a complete guide to everything you need to know about working with audio in Studio One 4!
