Every single track I upload has weird artifacting in the low end, and I can't find anyone else with this problem. I'm not sure why it's only my tracks. Only when played through the soundcloud platform do the tracks sound like this. Played through my computer? The tracks sound great. Youtube? Still good. Spotify? Really fucking good. Here is an example of what I'm talking about: https://soundcloud.com/jape-s/soundcloudcompressionsucks/s-PLxnS
. Listen to the second half where the kicks and bass come in, it literally sounds like I threw a bitcrusher on the master. Please let me know why this is and how I can fix it.
EDIT: I've noticed a lot of people talking about a distorted high end due to rounding errors in the codec. As far as I know, this is not the problem I'm having. This is strictly about the low end. I've also obviously tried uploading the highest quality formats supported by soundcloud, but it makes no difference. Furthermore, quiet bass sounds (that are definitely not clipping) experience the same bitcrushing effect. This issue has been plaguing me for years, and I've been able to hear it though car speakers, headphones, studio monitors, you name it.
