I have Logic Pro X 10.2.4.
I never noticed this problem before today:
I started having the same problem as shown in this reddit post:
everytime I try to upload an mp3 file into logic, it speeds up the audio by a whole lot. I've made sure that the sample rate of the audio file and the project is the same but it still doesn't make a difference. All the previously saved projects that had audio imported into them don't have a problem but if I try to upload a new audio file into those projects, I am encountering the same problem
I have noticed that this doesn't affect only mp3 files (downloaded from the internet), but also m4a files recorded in my iPhone (with the factory voice recorder app) and sent to my MacBook.
The sample rate of Logic (in Project Settings > Audio) is 44.1kHz, as is the sample rate of all the files I try to import (except potentially the m4a files,
soxi doesn't work on m4a though so I don't know their sample rates).
Here is an example of an audio file which I may attempt to import:
here it is after dragging and dropping from Finder into Logic:
It sounds like some parts are just ... skipped. It sounds the same in Logic playback and after exporting (bouncing).
I'm temporarily using the 'fix' that the reddit OP noted:
I managed to bypass the issue by just converting all of my mp3 files to wav files.
I just ran a few quick
ffmpeg -i originalrecording.m4a originalrecording.wav ffmpeg -i originalrecording2.mp3 originalrecording2.wav
Drag and drop the WAV files instead of the original files, and logic no longer chops them up weirdly.
How come this happens though?
What's the root of this problem, and how can it be resolved?
