    Okay, here's the story...

    I record myself singinng on my iPod with a iTalk.

    I plug in my iPod and the file is uploaded into iTunes.

    I drag the file out of iTunes onto the desktop and it becomes a .wav file. Or it always was, i guess...

    I then drag this into Garageband. But when I play it, it sounds totally different, it's only speeded up, and squeaky and stuff.

    Anyone know what's happening?

    Hi,
    From memory, the iTalk records audio with a sample rate of 8KHz and Garageband records/plays back at 44.1KHz. If you convert (upsample) your 8KHz wav file to a 44.1KHz wav file it should fix the problem. I've been spoiled by Pro Tools, so I've never had to go looking for any sample rate conversion software, but I'm sure someone else will be able to point you towards something that'll do the trick.

    Tim.

    Hi again,
    I just successfully used Quicktime 6 Pro to upsample an 8KHz 16-bit wav file to a 44.1KHz 16-bit wav file. Just open it up in Quicktime and choose Export: Sound to Wave, Use: 44.1KHz 16 bit Mono. I dunno if this will work in the non-pro version of Quicktime, sorry.

    Tim.
