I'm trying to create a podcast using Audacity. I've tried this on Gutsy and Hardy. Here's the problem.

1. Good USB microphone 
2. Good voice recording 
3. Music in the beginning 
4. Voice in the middle 
5. Music at the end

It all sounds good when I play it in Audacity. The trouble starts when I export it to a 128 kbps MP3 file. The music sounds good but the audio is crap. If I export as a wave file it all sounds fine. I'm hoping someone on the list can help.
