My Recordings Sound Horrible?

When I copy my mixes to my PC and open the uncompressed audio file to Audacity, it sounds horrible; I am not sure what the problem is. It sounds like a mix of these:

  • Too much gain
  • White noise
  • Some frequencies sound fine

It’s as if there is an extra layer of sound added, because it sounds fine, just with added horrible noise

What if you open it with iTunes? I think Audacity doesn’t support the AIFC format.

I know a better way to describe it: It sounds ‘crushed’, you know, like the ‘crush’ effect. How could I undo this, using audacity

Quite simply, yes, it worked :slight_smile: thanks
