My licensed version of Zortam MP3 Media Studio 8.20 records MP3s off CD such that they play back at some fraction of the normal speed, at a lower pitch, in slow motion. I verified this by recording the same CD with WMP, then recording with Zortam again. I’d just upgraded to 8.20 about a week ago, when this started – I think before I realized what was happening, I’d recorded about 20 CDs that way, and they all exhibit the same effect. I did a full virus-scan with Norton just to check if there was a confounding factor. I tried playback in several players to ensure that it was the recording, not the playback causing the problem.
I don’t know that this was a problem in the previous version, I had been having good results before, & really love the automatic insertion of lyrics that Zortam Studio does. I’d like to regress to the previous version, to see if the problem goes away.
