    sorry mate not trying to be a prick but 96Kbps does no justice to anything 192Kbps at the very least! 320Kbps is the way to go.. tracklist is big and has potential to be a great mix! just needs to be recorded at a higher quality

    how are you recording bro? will help you out

    Audacity mate, auxiliary to jack wire to mic input. Had been wonderin for a while how everyone else gets there sets so cystral clear, thought it was mainly to do with me gains tho. How do you go about getting it to 320kps?

    ok well it could be due to a number of things..

    firstly ensure that your not 'clipping' when your recording i.e. on your mixer on your db readings that your in the green.. sometimes in the yellow but never in the red.. that will stop the music distorting

    secondly in audacity if you go into edit and preferences you can choose the quality that audacity exports MP3 at.. set this to 320Kbps

    and the third is you could use an audio interface which is what I use.. for example the behringer u-control.. not sure if this is essential but thats how myself and quite a few people have solved their recording problems

    hope this helps dude
