Envelope

In the frame properties dialogue box {Modify > Frame}, go to the sound tab for any instrument layer. In the window which displays the audio waveform, click anywhere in the window. Flash will add an envelope which you can adjust by grabbing the box and dragging.

The goal is to bring layers in and out at various points where they repeat (you will see vertical lines showing the repeat points). It is a good idea to make a change in 4 or 8 bar increments to be consistent with standard musical phrasing.

One approach might be to build your song gradually, starting with only the drums, then adding the bass 8 bars later, followed by the guitar and so on until you reach a climax. Then you can repeat your movie and do it again! It's up to you. This approach will create more variances in the music and stay interesting much longer than a single loop.
