Performance issue with MP3 files

Hi,

I have a working project on Storyline that will be importing mp3 audio files to the file. The thing that I am worried about is the number of mp3 audio files imported to the Storyline file. It will be total of 30+ audio files. This is only the first module. I am already breaking down this module to four small modules, and still the amount of mp3 is still a lot. So I would like to find out in advance what kind of issues that I should be aware of, and how to tackle those issues. Any advices, or suggestions are welcome. Thank you in advance.

Something else you should be aware of is that with MP3 files in particular you will notice a difference in playback quality when imported into Storyline. I do not think Storyline causes the issue, but rather amplifies it. The problem is caused by the nature of the MP3 compression which causes a loss of bass. This can be easily corrected with a third party free app like Audacity to add extra bass to each file before importing to Storyline.

Thank you very much for all the tips. I do wonder about one thing. This is for Phil. How was the performance with that many MP3 files on ipad Safari? or the Articulate Player app? We might have to go with iPad Safari due to no support of Tin Can api. I really appreciate if you can give some insights. Thanks.
