How to insert an audio clip to a track

How does one insert an external audio file to a track? Years ago I knew how to do this; today I do not.

Thank you.

Load it as an instrument. You can drag the audio file right to the instrument slot from your file manager. Or just drag and drop onto renoise and it will load into the currently selected instrument slot.

Thank you. How does one play the instrument in the track? Pardon the simplicity of my questions; it’s all a bit complicated.

Respectfully & thanks.

Assuming you want to play the clip straight, you probably want a C-4 note. So set the octave to 4 (dropdown at the top, or use / and * on numeric keypad), go into edit mode (escape) and hit Z to enter a C-4.
