Before posting music to the community please ensure that the tune is the proper quality.

 

How to Ensure of Proper Quality

Music Files are often tampered with, for various reasons, and one of the most common ways is Up-coding the music files so that they appear higher quality than they actually are. Up-coding is the process of encoding a music file into a Lossy file type then transcoding it to another Lossy or Lossless file type.

Most Up-codings are not audibly noticeable to most people so using a Spectrum Analyzer like SPECTRO or SPEK is recommended.

If you do not know how to use a Spectrum Analyzer then Click Here to be brought to a tutorial.

 

NOTE: You must include a screenshot of the Spectrum Analyzer if you are reporting a thread because the poster did not Ensure Proper Quality
