Thought I'd ask around as I've been wondering how to get better performance out of mp3 compression... It could be that I'm over thinking this but I've heard some really good mp3 mixes, and to me, when I do it, it sounds hollow like it's missing the oomph.
I mixed this down before it was complete just to see how it sounds under mp3 compression. I'm especially hearing something hollow in the second half after the cymbals kick in. It sounds nice and full in my stereo wav format...

Anyhow, if you have any general tips about mixing or getting things to sound decent in mp3, I'd like to discuss a bit.
