Strange low freq Hum on soundcloud/youtube

Post by alekst1923 » Mon Dec 26, 2011 3:25 am

Does anyone know what causes this strange hum to low frequency. I think it's dither.

Here are two examples:

Youtube, 0:59 low pass filter on drums: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MA9Xl0Lfc0
Soundcloud, same time for soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/alekst1923/drumst ... h-ft-ragga

Thanks.

I don't know about YouTube but I know Soundcloud converts all files you upload to 128kbps mp3. So, you want to be sure & upload original audio, not already compressed mp3s.
