  • mp3 muffled

    I like the content of this talk, but the audio volume was too low. I mixed a boosted mono mix. Would it be OK if I uploaded it to SoundCloud? Or does the InfoQ staff want to control this?

    I’ve listened to the MP3 and it sounds completely fine to me - I wonder if it’s a problem with your headphones or device speakers?

    Regardless we’d rather you didn’t upload it to Soundcloud - obviously we provide these files for people to listen to for free but would much rather they didn’t wander too far

    Thanks and regards,
