So a quick FYI. I’m a Sonar refugee and have found I really enjoy the workflow and sound of Ardour and Mixbus. I started a session with a new client and decided I would take the plunge and do the entire session Sonar free. It’s been going GREAT! But now I’m at mixdown stage and the export wav of the mix plays sped up in all other software. OK. Seems like a sample rate issue.
#1 uhh WHY?
#2 How do I fix this before my client comes tomorrow!!!
So I recorded the session 32 float/88.2Khz through a Mackie 1620 Firewire. Mackie says it’s driver sample rate is dictated by the DAW and changes accordingly internally. When I open up the ASIO driver panel it is listed as 44,1 but I’m not sure it would say anything if it’s happening “internally”.
My work around was to install Jack and direct the audio output to Audicity and print the mix like we used to in the old days running a mix to 1/4". Wouldn’t that degrade the sound though possibly??? Would that even work? IDK. You ppl are real smart out there and I trust your guidance. All I know is I have to figure this out today. I’m not getting anywhere in my searches. (Perhaps my search words are at fault)
Thank you for any help you can provide.
