If you would like to import a large number of audio samples in Ableton Live and keymap them to individual keys , do these things.

1. Open up an instance of the Sampler instrument

2. Select all the audio files you would like to keymap at one time and drag them to the sampler.You can either do this by dragging samples from Lives session or arrange view or from a directory on your computer.

4. Move the ends of the keymap display so the number of spanned keys is equal to the number of samples.
