Import audio files to lanes

I have multiple takes, recorded outside of cubase, that are now wav files on my computer (Windows 10). I would like to import them as audio files, each take into a separate lane.
I tried the following:
Import the first take to the beginning of measure one. Import the second take to the beginning of measure one. I was hoping it might overlap the files so that I could expand them into lanes. But it just arrange the two files sequentially. So, I guess that’s not how you do it.
Can anyone advise me on how to do this?

Using cubase 10.5 artist.

Watching with interest. This could be useful for me too. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m pretty sure you can just enable lanes on the audio track where you want your takes to be on, and drag and drop those takes into those lanes.

If I may ask a follow up:
How do you enable lanes?

Just click on the “Show Lanes” button:


I got it to work by dragging and dropping files from the import window. Is drag and drop the only way to do it? Just wondering. This gets me where I wanna go.
Thanks everyone.

It’s the only way I know of (and I think it’s pretty easy, that’s how I do it, too). But others might know more!
