I need help. Why does my song render in such bad quality? It sounds great as a WAV on my computer. If it helps, the song has a LOT of bass. Thanks

Hi there Dj Absurdia,

All of our users' uploads are encoded into 128kbps mp3 audio files for the purpose of streaming. With this sort of file compression, a loss in quality is expected to an extent.

There are mixing and mastering techniques that help reducing the audible quality loss to a minimum. iZotope, for instance, provides a great blog post on the topic here.

By the way - if you enable your tracks to be downloadable, your listeners will be able to download the exact same file that you uploaded, so this might be an option to provide your community with a high quality alternate solution.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Mathis
