But if you choose either one, the sound just goes into the Library and doesn't go on the Stage so it doesn't really matter. I'll choose Import to Library and then I'm going to import music.mp3. The sound now appears in the Library.

Now you don't really need a layer just for sound, but I prefer doing this because it's confusing when you mix sound with other layers. This way, I put all my sounds on the same layer and it's easy to find and control those sounds.
