I export in audacity, check volume, and its all good. But for some reason, SoundCloud has to drop the volume of the track by almost half. None of the quality drops just the volume. This is the first time this has happened to me and I want it to be the last. Never before 😕 URGENT

Hmm, we do not add any sort of equalization or normalization to our users' uploads. Hence, it might be worth looking into mixing and mastering methods, especially if your recording for later online distribution. Here's a good read about this.
