Mp3sounds like the chipmunks when it plays



I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what’s wrong. Here’s my problem. I have an mp3 music file that sounds like the chipmunks. Why would that be and where do I go to fix it? I don’t know what other information would be helpful.


Hi getsaved and Welcome:

Take a look at this other thread. It’s possible a change was made to a sound card.


If it’s only a single mp3 and the others still play fine, then I’d suspect the file is corrupted.


Try a different player. Some players will only play 44.1 KHz sampled MP3s and the one that acts up might be a different (32 or 22.1 KHz) sample rate.
