    Strange high-pitched beeping after upload to Freesound

    I've only just noticed a strange high-pitched beeping in many of my uploaded sounds on Freesound. At first I thought it must be a problem with my equipment, but I'm relieved to discover the beeps only occur after uploading to Freesound.

    Please listen to this audio for example, where you can here the high-pitched beep after 8, 13 and 21 seconds... and throughout.

    How has this happened? It's really annoying!

    Many thanks, Paul

    This is very common here.

    The playback of sound files on this site is of a much lower quality version of the file that is actually downloaded by users, so there are some weird artifacts like this that appear. I'm not entirely sure what causes it - perhaps a certain frequency triggers it?

    Regardless, I've started putting little notes in the description saying that the quality is always better when downloaded etc.
