media bay previwer distortion

I created several clips from a recording of a shaker and bounced them. A few of them when played from the media bay with the previewer have a distortion like a long brick hallway. The sound fine on the project and when auditioned in the pool.

Any thoughts?

Align beats to project was selected in the Previewer of Media Bay and that caused the sample to play back at a much faster rate. I guess the sample was recorded at a slow tempo.

What project would that be that the beats get aligned too? I can have more than one project in the directory with the Audio folder. Maybe it’s the original project that was used for recording the original sample. The Media Bay does not indicate a tempo, and each project has it’s own pool, it seems to me. I’m still trying to get my head around file management.
