Have a SoundCloud? Post it here, I'd love to follow and hear your sounds! Nothing is quite as inspiring as a fellow musicians music

SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds

Let me start off by saying I KNOW 128kbps sounds like garbage, but unfortunately SoundCloud STILL uses it and that is fact.

That being said, I would like to ask for your guys' tips on how to mix your music for 128kbps. The problem I am having is that the high end of my music tends to sound distorted and the artifacts are completely noticeable after encoding, whereas commercial tracks seem to minimize these artifacts and still sound crisp on platforms such as SoundCloud after encoding.

I use Ozone for mastering and have followed countless tips on lowering headroom, minimizing intersample peaks, narrowing the high end, dithering, always exporting at .wav etc., but it has come to my attention that my problem most probably occurs in my mix.

But I'm not sure where.

Here is my SoundCloud page if you'd like to listen to my tracks - it seems to occur in some more than others. Gasko | Free Listening on SoundCloud

There have been previous threads regarding this topic but they are old and have no real outcome (e.g. Mastering EDM for 128kbps)

Hope you guys can help me

Here's my pure analogue synth stuff in a vaguely late 70s/early 80s style:

Why not!?

So I figure lots of other people will be posting their own music here, but why not get myself a LITTLE more publicity.

hope that works for everyone. Let me know what you think!

Your last chance to hear my Nintendo tracks! They'll be gone in a few days because I'll receive my Analog Four today and start making music seriously again and I don't have the room in my SC account to keep all the old music (and they are not that good anyway, more like demonstrations that you can do other things than just Mario music with a Nintendo DS).

Also, there's some older techno tunes in the bottom, made mostly with a Monomachine, with occasional help from a Vermona DRM 1 mk 3.
