I've noticed a few differences in the way a mix sounds in Cakewalk compared to what it sounds like when it is bounced down to an MP3. All tracks are going to busses, and all busses go to the master bus. The output to the MP3 is the Master Bus.
1> Bass instrument is louder in the MP3
2> reverb is more pronounced in the MP3
Actions to fix:
I have to go back to Cakewalk and lower the Bass bus a little lower in Cakewalk than what I want in order for it to be correct in the MP3.
I have to lower the wet mix of reverb in Cakewalk in order for it to be correct in the MP3
