I am also planning on putting material up on archive.org. One minor issue I
have had with soundcloud is the MP3 encoding introduces artifacts
occasionally on material that has quieter passages with instruments in the
higher register (like woodwinds). Luckily, if I upload a WAV, it will keep
that as the download file while having the lower quality MP3 for playback
on the site. archive.org will let me have multiple formats online,
including FLAC and OGG.

or anyone else's for that matter: it was more meant to be a public
statement/reminder. It seems any time someone posts something on
soundcloud, someone else replies asking for a direct link or sayint that
the player or audio doesn't work. I figured it would be good to make
everyone aware of the possible difficulties associated with SC material.
