View Full Version : Audio length

I loaded some MP3 audio into Layout and the 52 second clip was compressed to under 2 seconds, making the deep voiced speaker sound like a chipmunk. Can you change the lenth?

Well I thought I would try and help, but I can't even hear the audio. Must be a driver issue.

I ran into this problem before a long time ago. It had to do with the sample rate and the encoding used when the clip was saved. Layout expects a particular sample rate/encoding, and when your clip doesn't match, it freaks out.

Try 128kbps at 44.1kHz-Joint Stereo and see if that fixes it.

I'll try that, I just used what the client sent me so I'll pull out my trusty Audacity and re-encode.

That did the trick, thanks.
