    sorry if this is a repost,

    does anyone else find glitches in their tracks after they've been uploaded to soundcloud? i understand there's gonna be a reduction in quality but i find the drums seem to glitch in certain places and it almost sounds as though the hits don't line up on top of each other. anyone else had this problem?

    there are 2 issues i've noticed with soundcloud, first one is the mp3 compression, totally fuk bass up if it goes low enough, and also fuks the top end, this is pretty common with mp3 compression tho, espcially if its done twice (ie u upload a 320, then play back is @ 128, urgh), that will fuk percussion up and make it soudn glitchy, second is hard limiting, although i havent noticed that in a while, maybe they stopped doing it
