Is it possible to embed a music sound track that plays in the background during the announcement loop?

Whilst my announcements are looping I play music using the Audio Playlist found in the Advanced tab.

Hi Graham,
It's most likely possible if you are placing your song in a cue and all of your cues are in a script with a script control. If you are using the Announcement Loops function under advanced, I would not recommend it. I would recommend against placing a file in the announcement loop altogether as every time it loops, it will play the same song over and over. Can you give me more details on what you're trying to do and I'll try to help.

Hello, fellas! In MS4.5, I used to have an announcement loop with audio as follows:

1. Control Script (Timed start 30min before service)
2. Audio Track (Advance Immediately; Don't end audio with Cue)
3. Announcements...
4....
5...
6....
7....
8.... etc.
9. Control Script (Loop; Target 3.)

I have only been on MS since this past Monday, so I am currently in process of fully rebuilding my "template script", and I am not sure how I would do this now. I have not found a replacement control for "Advance Immediately" or "Don't end audio with cue" on the audio cue. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are using a single audio clip, you can attach it to the first cue and set it to Loop, and not end with that cue. You may also need to go to the Object Visibility tool and set it to Show on All, too.

Thanks, Adam! I will experiment with that some later today! I have seen the "embedded" objects for slides. I assume that works similarly to PowerPoint?
