Sounds fine to me.  Placebo effect.

It may also have to do with whether you're allowing people to download the file, or only stream it. I think allowing downloads is the only way to ensure people get the actual file, unmodified.

i compared the stream to the original and it seems identical to me.
hey huntermusic try a wav or aiff and let me know what u hear please.

hey john is there any way besides clicking on the notify button to  be automatically notified of replies that u post on?
does that make sense? :)

thanks

I have a soundcloud account however I never use it...Not sure why.

I do notice when people post soundcloud links to mixes that sometimes when you click on play the file will not play...happens a lot for me and soundcloud.

Maybe its the computer not working properly or something...still running on XP which might not help the cause either.

Noticed no differnce in quality from soundcloud, although...

any possibility of us being able to embed the tracks into a post from soundcloud? (for those that want to?)

I think SC sounds the best out of em all tbh. I find SC keeps the file integrity pretty well as opposed to crappy players like myspace and such.

I always thought Soundcloud sounded fine even while streaming, but I recently posted an MP3 with a lot of weird harmonics that the Soundcloud could not handle - it sounds glitchy.  This is just in the streaming version.
