Changing pitch during playback

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My projects seems to be changing pitch automatically during playback. Its starts playing normal and then its like the pitch changes or the tempo slows down or something. Anybody know why this might be happening?

This happend to me long ago when I had windows sounds active - and running project at 48k and maybe get a "ding" sound from windows when a dialog pops up and similar - could be enough for soundcard to switch sample rate to what windows use. But this was a rather fixed change in pitch then, at the time Sonar could run at 44k suddenly.

Just an idea, if any activity is connected to this happening - turn off internal soundcard in bios and also windows sounds.

Lars, removed windows sounds still the same. I have to stop the project and start it back and it plays in the correct key but then it goes off key for some odd reason?

A while back I had an issue where randomly some instrument in my mix would be out of tune. And not always the same instrument!

Eventually figured out that the pitch wheel in my keyboard has a bit of jitter around the 0 position, and occasionally spits out non-zero values when I'm not touching it. CW had auto echo enabled on whatever instrument track I was most recently adjusting.

Solved the problem by disconnecting the keyboard when I'm not actively using it, and freezing all instruments.

Robert, what does the Event List suppose to do for me?

 

Pitch change and  tempo change events may be in there.   You can filter out the notes in the view.
