i don't know if this is the right forum for my question, but here goes.
i'm running on Intel PIII with kernel 2.4.18, ALSA, and a Hammerfall 9632 card. CD
quality WAV files recorded with ALSA from live performances play back with no problem via
a Yamaha CRW8424S scsi burner was recently installed and i burned the WAV files to CD with
both "cdrecord" and "cdrdao". data is actually transferred but when i play the CD's with
a CD player, the tunes are too slow and too low by about a minor third.
i tried burning at various speeds from 1x to 8x, but always the same problem. have also
tried a variety of other options to "cdrecord," like using a really big buffer, etc. the
commands "file" and "aplay" give the following information:
$ file blues1.wav
blues1.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, stereo 44100 Hz
$ aplay blues1.wav
Playing WAVE 'blues1.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 44100 Hz, Stereo
i wrote to Jorg Schilling who developed "cdrecord", but he only said i need to use 44100
Hz data and that if ALSA wrote incorrect headers, i should write the ALSA group instead.
i doubt it's a problem with ALSA.
at any rate, i'm out of ideas. has anyone experienced a similar problem? any pointers
would be greatly appreciated.
