Hello everyone, i'm very new here, this is my first post on chipmusic.org, unfortunately it's cause i'm having tech issues
I've come across something infuriating in the music i'm making. Basically everything i record sounds fine until i convert it to MP3. Then something weird happens. Low frequency artifacts come out of nowhere. I'm linking to a rapidshare download of a zip file containing the original .wav recording and the mp3 conversion (128kbps CBR)
The recording is of a DMG prosound mod, then running it through a kaosspadmini with a reverb effect, then just recording straight into Reaper via line in on sound card.
My guess is that either the stereo ping-pong like effect is setting it off, or the low frequencies aren't agreeing with the conversion. Either way it's infuriating! Any help would be invaluable as i'm almost completely stuck on what to do.
(also the mp3 i attached is encoded twice - mp3 to mp3, which has highlighted the problem even moreso, maybe try converting the wav to 128kbps mp3 yourselves and see if you get the artifacts as well?)
