    CE Pro slows down on playback

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've been using CEP for a couple of years and I've never had this problem. I recorded about 74 min of audio as 1 stereo track, edit it as I normally do and save. When I play back the file, it plays slower and slower until it's barely playing at all. Once a file like this plays, all the other files play like that as well. I have some multi track sessions and mixdowns from other projects that worked fine but now also play slow. Anyone know what's going on and why I'm seeing this? And, more importantly, how to fix it?
    TIA,
    Bill L

    By slower, do you mean that the audio starts to stutter and the stuttering is slowing it down?

    Nope...

    like someone has their finger on the turntable and it's playing at half speed, and then it gets slower and slower until 120 bpm is down to about 30 bpm. I'm talking really slow!

    It's probably your computer. If it slows down on playback, you need to get more ram, especially when using plugins. Also, sometimes stretching out the bar on the top that stretches the waveform bar out slows it down. Make it small so it requires less effort for the computer.

    The purpose of a cable is to get stuck under everything in its path.

    D'you think it's the huge file size in this case as well?

    It's a 2.2 gig P IV with 750megs of ram. I've burned hundreds of CDs with no problems. When viewing the waveform, it's all on the screen at the same time. I look at the clock and it's not running correctly. Very peculiar indeed.

    I've been doing this for 4 years and never had a problem until no. Even on computers with much less power. I'm going to try bringing the wav file to a different computer and see if that plays slow. Thanks for all the comments guys.

    Yes, this is peculiar. I can't even guess what the problem might be. You might want to post this at the Audition forum at http://www.adobe.com/support/forums/main.html
    There's a LOT more CEP activity there.

    How much free space do you have on your hard drive?

    Keep in mind that playback and processing speed decreases when you haven't got much free space left on your harddrive.

    I have 32 gigs open on that partition. Again, everything was working fine (I built this computer in Feb 03) until 3 days ago. And I'm completely lost. I think I may uninstall the program and reinstall and see what that does. Virus dats are up to date and there's no spyware on the computer either. I also can't find any running processes that shouldn't be there, but I'll keep looking. Thanks again, guys.
