Combine 2 tracks w/ different plug-ins for bounce?

Hi, I'm wondering what the best way is to do the following. I was asked to digitize a lecture off a cassette tape. I created a large audio file (948.5 MB) of side 1 and it's on track 1. Then I turned the tape over and created an audio files of the rest, a much shorter file (37.4 MB), on track 2. I put some effects, DeEssor, etc. on track 1. The same plug-ins do not sound good on the shorter track 2 so I will put some different effects on that track as well. The goal is to glue the 2 files together and bounce out to a stereo file, probably an MP3, to get it to fit on a CD. What's the best way to do this since each track will have different effects? Do I bounce each separate track and then glue the 2 stereo files together and bounce that file again? Will that preserve the discrete effects of each track? Is MP3 the best compression for size or what is M4A:AAC? Shall I do Apple Lossless? I appreciate any help. Thank you! BederReply
