Thanks for info. Last time i used ardour very far ago (several month), and did 
not even know/search for this feature. This time i'm using qtractor (doing 
some advanced kind of playlist just for self, for training). And i only just 
figured out such usage case for DAW - before that i supposed to do it manually 
in sample editor and paste to daw project %).

One reason for me to currently use qtractor is that it uses flac format and 
doesn't need to copy/convert it into project dir. Anyway, i'm to recreate 
project on ardour eventually later.
