Questions, questions, and more questions. Except for compliments, all you ever get is questions. Steve, I'm wondering what you do as far as getting tapes played back at the right speed. And rather than let you off easy, and have you say you match the original LP, let's say you have two versions of an LP and they are slightly off from each other. What do you do? I have a Dinu Lipatti CD from EMI in which the Enesco Sonata, which should be in D major, and even says so in the title, sounds like E flat major. The source is a radio broadcast. Now I don't know if this was released on LP at the wrong speed or not. How do you think it got this far off in pitch? I brought it down a minor 2nd on SoundForge (5.88%) and now everything sounds fine and the piano sounds like it was played by a mortal. Further, more in line with popular music, do engineers adjust speeds of their machines on each song they remaster? If you take, for example, the rare original Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, and compare the pitches to the CD, some are faster and some are slower. I'm not talking huge amounts, but if you sync some up, some others are off by 0.3% No big deal, granted, but why are they off at all? I've also compared dubs of truck tapes to released live albums, and if you use the truck tape as the standard, some of the released cuts will be right on, some slower, and some faster. What gives? Further further, what do you do in the case of, say, Highway 61 Revisited? If you had been allowed to put out the mono mix, would you have put it out faster, as it was released, than the true-pitch stereo version?
