Audio integration | Best practice

Hi,

Currently, I am recording a single audio for multiple slides and then edit the audio using Storyline Audio editor and keep the audio chunk for the slide only.

Is that okay to follow this practice or separate audio for each slides is preferred?
Is there any performance issue or file size related concern in this?

thanks,
Shailesh

I think that process works and you shouldn't have any concerns around performance or file size. If you record into Storyline and edit your files using the Audio Editor, just make sure to export your audio once in a while so you have a backup of your recordings.  

A lot of developers will record in 3rd party programs such as Audacity. There's nothing wrong with Storyline's audio editor, but there's a benefit to having your audio saved outside the authoring program... just in case you overwrite something or accidentally delete it. It's just good to have the source as a backup.

To your question, there's nothing wrong with the workflow you've described and it's probably the most common one we see.
