So, in 2012 finally! I started to transfer my DAT masters to PC.
SONY PCM M1>CO3>PC my PC was running on windows XP and the soundcard was a M Audio Audiophile 2496.
The transfers were flawless, digital, with no issues whatsoever until my M1 died
5 years later, last week I got a TASCAM DA-20 so, time continue the job, only a few bunch of tapes left.
My computer now runs Windows 7 pro and the sound card is a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer SB0770.
So, today I began again, the result is a slow sound file, checked the sample rates? yes, if the DAT tape is in 48 I use the same rate on the new file to transfer, I used Soundforge, also switched to 44, nothing....... same result used Audacity.
I think that the SB0770 has an issue with Windows 7 since its an old card, this should be my issue?
I have an old PC that runs windows XP also still have that Audiophile 2496, what can I do is to try it in that PC
Other suggestion, knowledge
