We have recorded a meeting (2 hours) using Adobe soundbooth. By mistake, we selected a sample rate of 22050 Hz instead of 48000 hz. The playback is very choppy. Is there any way to fix this?

No, unfortunately there are little avenues to repair a bad recording. However a 22Khz recording shouldn't be "choppy". This actually is the sampling rate that YouTube uses. There may be other reasons that the recording is poor, I doubt that it's the sampling rate. 44.1Khz and 48Khz are actually used in music recording because of all the digital information -- dynamic range etc -- that the recording has to handle in dealing with the music programme. But 22Khz is quite good for vocals. Do you have any extra info.

What info do you need? Whenever we record at 48 it's great. I've tried 22 a few times but each time it's bad.

Well, I'm sorry, but it doesn't work like that. 22050 is quite acceptable in the industry for speech. Just a question because I have been using Cool Edit for the past decade to record: Cool Edit is now Adobe Audition, which is the recording programme and Adobe Soundbooth -- so they say -- is just the editing programme. Which programme are you using?

I suppose I should also add that you should check your bitrate. Is it 8 bit, 16bit...
Also, an 'off the wall' question are these recordings wav or MP3?

Well,  the problem either lies with the software or the PC's ability to record the data.
Suggest using other recording software. When I started recording they didn't even have 48khz, so I can assue you that's not the solution. Even 44.1 is CD quality.
