Hi All,

I know there are a ton of social networking sites out there that you're already trying to keep track of, but I think SoundCloud may be one of the few that mixing engineers could greatly benefit from. I've been trying to follow all the SoundCloud accounts that have done mixoffs for my stuff and have found that when new mixes come up from those I follow, I immediately listen to what they've done. I have also recently received mix work from people who have found my account.

There have been complaints about sound quality and such...I've heard that making the songs downloadable makes the quality better. I'm convinced.

Here's my SoundCloud account: . So post your SoundCloud accounts and we can all follow each other. Good day!

I'm here:

But I'll probably move my more serious stuff to a Facebook fan-page soon. The soundcloud compression is really butchering some of my mixes (while others seem to fair better, meh). I've been experimenting with the music-tab in conjunction with my dropbox and it seems to better for my needs (straightforward 320Kbs streaming from dropbox).
I'm cleaning up my server, but you can find some of the mixes I did on this forum here:

Hey all! here's mine :

Already hooked up with you I believe Mr Sterk, some really great stuff I'm hearing. May have just been a fluke but I'm pretty sure uploading WAVs to Soundcloud is better than mp3. I used to convert eveything to mp3 prior to uploading I guess in the hope that Soundcloud would then not need to compress but low and behold listening to the uploaded file on my page sounded like it had been though a lawnmower compare to the original! Some of the latest bits I've uploaded were as WAVs and the quality on my profile sounded much better.

It may well have just been a one off or a mix that somehow translated better to SoundCloud's butchery but I will try it with some other stuff.

Just to reiterate, you can set your Soundcloud tracks to allow downloads, which means the user can get your original file, in addition to the streamed one. I recommend doing that, as it lets listeners hear what your work really sounds like. You can make a track downloadable by clicking the little edit tab (the pencil) then clicking the Allow Downloads checkmark, click 'Save' and you're done!
