Weird problem I haven't encountered before....I used to record with Cakewalk years and years ago. Recently I got back into it and all my old projects are playing audio back too slow. I honestly didn't notice it at first, just thought man that sounds bad! Then when I got to the some vocal tracks and it's obviously playing too slow. I'd guess 80-90% playback speed or thereabouts. If I open the recorded files with a windows player they playback correctly.

Something to note is that the slow audio is synced perfectly with the midi instruments. I can increase the tempo of the project but the audio doesn't increase with it, only the midi. I messed with stretching the audio and I don't think that's the right way to deal with this either. It seems like CW is just slowing it down and then speeding it back up..with all the audio degradation that goes into processing the audio files like that. Is there some master setting I'm missing?

So I'd still like an explanation if anyone has an insight. This problem just spontaneously went away and now all playback sounds normal. Weird.
