I'm trying to make a slide show with music.  The piece of music I am using ends about 1.5 minutes before the slide show ends.  I would like to add a different piece of music for the last part.  How can I do that?

    If you want a sound file to play as a background track for more than 1 slide;   drop the sound file into the sound well in Inspector > Document > Audio

     

    Keynote can only use one sound file in the audio well - if you drag another, it will replace the existing file.

     

    If the sound file is is to play on one slide drag it to that individual slide

     

    Use a sound editing application to place two tracks side by side then add that new file to the audio well.

    Thanks Gary.  So, I have a song that starts on the first slide.  Then when it ends, (while trying to figure this out)  I dropped another song in another slide.  It plays on the new slide but then the very next one has both playing at the same time.  Next question, how do I remove the second song?
