Not necessarily. You can create a new layer, then with that layer selected in the Slide Layers panel - insert audio (Insert > audio) to that layer. The audio will play automatically on that layer when that layer is triggered to open. If you want to use parts of the same audio file that's on the base layer, you can insert that same audio file and then open it in the audio editor and remove the parts that you don't need. Don't worry though, it won't damage/change the original audio file. If you mess up, just delete the one you messed up from the timeline and re-insert the original audio file and start over.

One thing you'll want to pay attention to is the Layer Properties. It's the gear wheel in the lower right hand corner. You may want to check the box "Pause timeline of base layer" so that the two audio tracks don't play at the same time.

If you have more than one layer (2-3 layers in addition to the base layer) then there are some additional things to consider and setup. Hope that helps!
