When I upload songs which sound perfectly fine offline to SoundCloud, the sound quality of the loud parts really suffers. This only occurs when the volume gets loud. What is the cause of this?
My personal solution was to go into audacity and lower the volume of the song. It worked, but just starting out my new soundcloud account I must admit doing that to every song I create is going to be really time consuming.
Is there any other solution to this problem? Is it even known about?
Here is a sample track so you can audibly here the difference:
