    Can really suck the life out of mixes, very frustrating! Anyone else experiencing problems with this? If you don't already, uploading lossless makes a big difference.

    Not sure, I'm not familiar with MixCloud. I always assumed it was geared towards mixes, as opposed to single tracks?

    To be fair its a very popular service and raising the audio quality would take up a ton of server space and increase loading times. When listening to other people's tunes it's fine, but when you listen to your own ones where you can hear the difference between it and your original file... yea it's kinda annoying.

    Yes I experience that. And the clipping too, I can't be proud of anything I do and upload there anymore :D
