Why does sound recorder record speeded up?

I connected my keyboard (also tried my electric guitar) into my mackie 1202
mixer in line 1 and plugged the xlr analog in cables of my LynxOne soundcard
into the main outs of my mixer. I connected the line out of my onboard sound
card (which has my monsoon mm702 speakers connected to the line in) to the
headphones of my mixer - so I can hear what's recording.
However, when I record with windows "sound recorder" it plays back the wave
file speeded up. If I go into the "effects" tab in my sound recorder and
click on decrease speed it now plays the file at normal speed. Why doesn't
it record at normal speed. By default it records at a speeded up rate; sort
of like playing a 33rpm record at 78rpm.
Thanks for any help,
Mark

You don't say if the Windows sound recorder is what you're using for
both recording and playback, but nothing would surprise me there.

Whatever the culprit, the problem is that you aren't using the same
sample rate for recording as for playback. The sample rate is specified
within the files (.WAV) that you're creating, so *why* this is happening
is a mystery (sort of) but look for a setting for Sample Rate. In
windoze, they refer to "CD quality", "telephone quality" etc, and those
are tied to Sample Rate and word length in Control Panel.

"Sample Rate" is "RPM" in digitalese.

By default I think the properties for the sound recorder are:
Cd quality
Format: pcm
Attributes:44,100Hz,16Bit,Stereo 172KB/s

Don't count on it. I've seen different OS installs
set various 'default' settings* for sound recorder.
I wouldn't worry too much about it if you are going
to use a real program to record with. If you still
issues with other programs then it might point to
a sound card problem. Try one of the free download
recorders, -or- did the card come bundled with any
software ?

I just started out doing this today. I've never done this before. So I was
testing to see if I had everything plugged in correctly and used the sound
recorder to quickly do some testing. Eventually I was going to install an
audio software like cubase, sonar, samplitude, etc.

Sounds like dueling sample rates
