Hi, i need some help with this. I've made a little track with fl 9, i think it sounds good, but i'm only producing for 3 months or something so im noob.
But, when i put the track on my ipod, it sounds good at low volume but at higher volume, it sounds like the kicks are gonna explode and the bass is like shit...
How can i turn it back to good sound at high volume?

Tnx in adv.

It may be clipped, eg you've gone over 0db.

Also it's pretty important to listen to your track at different levels when you mixdown, very quiet to very loud.

Yea Subprimes right there, sounds like the most likely thing to have happened. If that is the case, turning all the tracks down seperately in FL so the master bus doesnt go over 0db should sort it (should stay a bit under, say -3 would be a good place).

fair enough, ive had ipods plugged in my system, and if they were turned on more than halfway, they were distorting, badly..
