How can I make a background music play continuously across multiple slides/layers?

Feb 11, 2015

Hello all, 

I want to insert a background music to multiple slides. These slides will automatically play without showing the "Previous""Next"button, so I wish the music track could continuously play through these slides without being cut off. 

Is that possible to do that?

Or if not, is there a way to fade in/out the music at the beginning and end of each slide?

Hi everyone!

I have some great news to share. We just released another update for Storyline 360. In Update 74, we've included important fixes and new features.

One of the new features we've included is: 

  • Create immersive experiences with continuous background audio that sets the tone and keeps learners engaged.

Launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer to take advantage of this update, and click the Update button next to Storyline 360. You'll find our step-by-step instructions here.

Please let me know if you have questions!

Hi Maggie.

I know it isn't the best way to do it, but I improvised. here are the steps to do:

1- Publish your storyline file (lms mode/scorm 1.2, for example).

2- Open a new storyline file,then go to the tab Insert> record screen.

3- Preview your story.html with chrome or IE.

4- Start to record.

5- After recording all, insert your favourite audio file and ta-da!!

It's not the reccomended way, but works well.

 

Please developers, help us to make it easier!!

Hey, so I am working in Storyline 360 and these javascript code including the modified verision that are compliant with html5 outputs are not working even when I download the examples. Is this a function lost when Storyline 2 upgraded to 360? Need to have an audio file loop as background music with no interruption using Storyline 360. Any suggestions?

I feel as a general rule that products like this should start with what Powerpoint can do, and build upon that. I am having this issue now as well, after coming back to give Storyline a try again. It has been YEARS and this is still not possible in Storyline? This seems like just a basic requirement to me, and I am really bummed this STILL isn't incorporated. Especially now that we have 360 versions which we pay for forever so they are "always up top date".
