How do I add more than one song?

I'm working on a power point presentation and it's really important, my boss
wants me to add up to five tracks and have them keep repeating with the
presentation, is that possible, and if so, how?

Thx for the help!

Re: How do I add more than one song?

Do you mean 5 tracks on a single slide or on different slides?

Jessie,

Your best bet is to convert the audio tracks to one big file.

Then get powerpoint to play (and repeat) the one big track.

As trying to get the timing correct in relation to the individual slides is
next to impossible.

Something like audacity from
http://www.audacity.com

should help convert and join the tracks

Then see
Play sounds across multiple slides (A WAV runs through it)

On all slides, they are just three simple slides with all the information
about our firm, and they should just keep repeating

Jessie,

Taj has suggested you to go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and install
the software for combining the music files together

Re: How do I add more than one song?

You can simply use AUDACITY (free) and quite easy to use.
