Compression: You will want to either use a global compression setting or set the compression for each individual sound file. Sounds with low frequencies, such as bass sounds, will compress extremely well. Others such as drums with hi-hat may get cutoff if you compress them too much. Use your judgment and keep in mind the role the music plays in your project. Above all, you will need to experiment with all of your sounds to get the right mix and settings.
Keith Kubal of Enstar has developed an advanced technique or engine for delivering multiple compositions based on, but independent of the content of a Flash site. For further detail, go to www.enstar.com/flashsound/index.html.
This information should be sufficient to get you started with scoring your sounds in Flash. And with Flash5's ActionScripting features, you should be able to take this technique even further!
