I suggest starting at page 5... There, there are tutorials which demonstrate the power of padshop
Page 9 shows some sample information...
And yes, you can drag and drop samples into padshop... Even from your desktop of some other folders on the pc. The samples will then be listed in the sample browser section in padshop under 'user samples,.
