One of my big frustrations withs SC is the mostly lame stream quality at 128kbps.
But there is some music that is so great that it's still worth listening to, even the lack of quality. But very much to my surprise I just came across this a mix where I was surpised it didn't sound as shitty as SC usually sounds: https://soundcloud.com/the-joy-boys/the-joy-boys-bachstelzen
Note, I'm playing back through the VOX player for OSX, which integrates SC.
Then on further inspection very much to my surprise I noticed that the stream was actually a 320kbps stream. Which contradicts the widespread opinion that everything on SC is lame 128kbps. But why this stream? Certainly I always upload my tracks in 320, but when they playback they are streamed as 128kpbs stream.
Hence the question:
- Why this stream?
- And what can I do to get the same quality for my listeners?
