Change sample rate after recording (adobe Soundbooth)

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.

Hey Vee_Mod, if you're on this one. This is called humour.

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?

Buffer size 2048

Bits per sample 16
Sync reference Yes

It's a .wav file

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.
