Audio Problems with 192kHZ


Recommended Posts



I have a project which was recorded at 192Khz in 24-bit about 18 months ago. There were no audio problems.


This week I went back to the project to mix it but using my MOTU Ultrlite MkIII as the audio output I get no sound. Nothing. Not even the levels on the faders have any life. This is for audio tracks and midi tracks alike.


However as soon as I change the audio output within the project to my iMac's inbuilt output speakers I get sound just fine.


I have 13 other projects on my iMac using exactly the same equipment (although the rate is set to 96KHz in 24-bit in these projects). same iMac, same audio interface, same monitors, same DAW.....same everything and I've not had a single problem such as the above.


Any ideas how I can solve this? I'm on a tight deadline for this project so any help will be much appreciated.


I tried converting the 192 KHz audio files into 96KHz in 24-bit but this didn't go so well as it made the audio files sound twice as fast.

Thanks for the reply David.


I did the factory reset on on my audio interface and it made no difference. However; I dug out my old audio interface (another MOTU Ultralite mkIII) and the project now produces sounds for all the tracks......but the project keeps stopping every time it plays due to a system overload of the audio engine.


I've already tried to convert the audio files from 192 to 96 but it made them sound twice as fast! Apart from audio bin > convert files is there any other way to convert the sample rate of audio files?

Thanks for your help David.


I've started the process of converting the files. So far most have converted fine but a few haven't converted as I would have liked as large chunks of the said file have just disappeared.


I'll just have to re-record these tracks.
