|02/12/2005||Ben Mohr||I added this show since to the list since it will circulate. However, how can a pure digital source be off-pitch (and by as much as it is)? Don has taped a lot of other shows during this period that currently circulate without problems so I'm guessing this problem is not on the master DAT. Maybe the D8 DAT heads used for transfer could be running slow or the tape got stretched. Regardless, I've never seen this before. Anybody have any ideas?|
I don't think that digital tape can "stretch". The digital recording is just a string of 0s and 1s. If you try to physically strech the tape, it still can't add more zeros and ones to the string. My guess as to the culprit is probably the 48k > 44.1k sample rate conversion. If a 48k sound file is read by a 44.1k device, it will run about 10% slow.
