48 kHz

Last night ALL the audio on my computer, from Ableton Live, to iTunes, to the internet, was all pitched and slowed down about a step. It was inexplicable and freaking me the hell out. After some panicked investigation, I found my MOTU 828mkii Word Clock out of sync with my external clock, and it was playing 48kHz synced to 44.1kHz.

I’m not sure how it got set that way, but I fixed it by changing the Sample Rate from 48kHz to 44 in the MOTU Audio Setup software.
