A year ago I was uploading MP3 files to SoundCloud with no problem. Now it doesn't matter whether I upload lossy or lossless, MP3 or WAV, my tracks experience heavy disortion and artifacts, mainly in higher frequencies, and the mids are completed muffled. It sounds exceptional bad on the SoundCloud app.

Here is an example:

The original file can be downloaded for comparison. My mastered tracks recently are mixed well and definitely aren't clipping. What's going on here?

This is also a problem for my tracks and many other artists 😞 It's a shame that the Soundcloud playback quality is so mediocre. I love Soundcloud, but this is a big problem {:|
