I’ve just recently downloaded the cubase 7 elements trial version.
I did this to work/edit the vocals of my upcoming E.P. and the studio in which we recorded uses Cubase.
So everything was going smooth, first edit was done.
and I just switched quickly from cubase to my browser to look for a certain cubase command.
but when I switched back… the whole track suddenly started playing at twice the speed, and all my vocals became chipmunk style. there is no way to revert this.
Someone told me this could be because of sample rate, and that i might have to turn it down to 44.1kHz to get the normal speed again.
This makes no sense to me, because why should lowering my sample rate and a/d conversion quality be downgraded just to have the software work properly.
Also it was untrue, because changing it to 44.1 doesn’t change a thing
I also never had this problem with other DAW’s in my live.
The original project was made by another producer, so I saved my edits to another project file.
and named it with ‘‘vocal edit’’
reopening cubase and or the file didn’t help at all.
but for some reason I could open the original project and it prompted me to a window that gave me the option to work with a newer back up version (.bak file) and even though I was set back a few moves and edits.
The audio speed was back to normal.
So i was like ok… super stupid… but … problem solved on to the next project
so here I am after a few hours of editting, finally done…
no problems what so ever.
But I was thinking, the project is a bit of a mess, let’s tidy it up by giving certain groups a certain collor
really the only thing I did was give a track a green collor, and BAM, the whole project was double speed chipmunk style again!!
Now I know I can go back to the original file and load a newer back up.
yet still… this is simply ridiculous…
what did I do wrong? how can I change the playback speed back to normal?
