    I hope this is the right place for this:

    Ihave a song I'm working on. I work in Cubase on a Windoze machine. When I play it through Cubase, it sounds as it should. Ditto for when i play it in Windows media.

    Then I transfer it via memory stick over to my Mac, and play it through Quicktime, or i-tunes, and on the one quiet section of the song, there is about one second of the most horrendous hiss I've ever heard.

    I tried the whole process three times, and each time it is heard only after transferring to the mac.

    Any ideas as to what might have gone wrong?

    What are you saving it as?
    What format, bitrate etc.

    It's entirely possible that a codec on the mac could be having hissy fits (pun intended).
