From soundcloud help

Sometimes our transcoding system can create audio artifacts, as we transcode all tracks to 128 kbps mp3 for streaming playback. Uploading a lossless or high-quality lossy file will usually reduce these to a minimum, but unfortunately there's not much we can do for the handful of individual tracks that are still affected.

If you choose to make your track downloadable though, the version users can download will be an exact copy of the version you uploaded, without any transcoding.

Is it possible to use those soundcloud widgets or player here on mixoff forum?
On the gearslutzx forum there are special tags to insert your soundcloud files.

If you use the
Code: [Select]
[HTML][/HTML] tags around the embedded player it should work:


Let me know if it doesn't work for you...

That code between HTML tags. How do you create it or can it be find somewhere from soundcloud web page?

When you click 'share' on Soundcloud it pops out a menu, which has an 'embed' field with that code. Just click in there and copy it, then paste it here between the 'html' tags.

Still not working.
Those html tags disappear and only that iframe part is visible.
Code: [Select]
[html]<iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F42638783&show_artwork=true"></iframe>[/html]

It looks like the html tags got stripped out when posting before, I changed the settings a bit, try it again and see if it works for you. It did for me,  but it may be because of my admin privileges...

Now it works in my previous post to this thread, but it doesn't work in the message at the thread of that song.

Hmmm, I fixed it for you, but I wish I knew why it wasn't working. I have the forum set to allow html and flash in posts. I'll keep looking for a solution.

Just a bit of my recent experience with Soundcloud:

First, ProTools 10 includes a "share to SoundCloud" option when exporting your mixes.
This I find very timesaving and useful.

Second, I have found that leaving headroom wothin your mix helps the upload encoding process IMMENSELY.
Usually, I leave anywhere from 3 to 6 dB of headroom of the peaks to the maximum volume of the file, 0dBFS.

Third, it really is helping me to realize where the mixes stand after being encoded into SoundCloud. Things that are phasey really crap out, things that were too "subtle" in the mix are completely lost, so generally I can decide to adjust my mixes a little bit according to what is coming out of the SoundCloud encding process.

I recommend people here start using this service, or anything like it, as more and more music is being accessed online. It is the delivery media for the 21st Century.
Cheers

Same problem in this message http://mixoff.org/index.php/topic,485.msg7054.html#msg7054

Can it be some option in forum software that prevent the use of html by normal member?

I also tried the flash-player but couldn't get it to work either.
