Recording file in higher speed


I have a problem. I have some old mp3 file which was converted from MC (tape). The tape player was old, and he reproduced tape much slower. Song which normal lenght was 5:55, now is 6:15 and it sounds terrible. I don’t have tape anymore, and my only solution to repair this file is to play it in audacity in speed 1,10 and record it that way. But I can’t figure it out how to do it. Can someone help me, to say first of all is it possible and if it is, to wright me short steps.


Use the “Change Speed” effect.

Yes. as your file is about 6% slow, you will need to go into “Effect” then “Change Speed” to speed it up.

In this case, you need to speed the file up up by typing 1.06 into the “Speed Multiplier” Box and press “OK”.

The file will be compressed and reduced in length by about 22 seconds.

Good luck.

Tnx very much, I will try it.
