    I've got a quick question. How come when I post my music up on myspace it sounds different? ...is there any way I can keep it from losing quality and loudness cuz it losses that too...
    thanks for ya time

    myspace compresses the songs to make them sound like $*^t. no way around it. you could mix with that in mind, but thats about it.

    i think every one knows that myspace songs sound pretty poor, so dont feel to bad.

    Some people optimize for MySpace compression.

    Plus, if you have a better mix to begin with, when it's degraded, it will be better than one that sucked to begin with.

    It is what it is.

    Remember, it's just MySpace. Anybody who "matters" knows what's up, and will inquire about getting a link to a better sounding clip if they want to.

    I haven't had any problems with mixes translating into MySpace. I've done many mixes for folks on their MySpace pages and I've heard little to no change - at least no more than what would be heard from compressing to a 128kbps MP3.
