View Full Version : iTunes making awful MP3's from GarageBand

Hi,
I have GarageBand 08, and have been extremely disappointed at how iTunes muddies and squashes the hell out of drum sounds and vocals when exporting from GB to MP3.

This is the case despite me having created a custom bitrate of 224 kbps, turning off various auto settings, and having used compression and other 'loudness' enhancing effects in GB to lose as little as possible of the original sound, so I am thinking that something must be going on which I can't figure out, and which is beyond the typical 'lossy' nature of the MP3 format.

Does anyone have any ideas about how to remedy this situation?

Thanks,
