Sorry if this has been asked a dozen times: I'm trying to listen to a rip on Spotify but it's bizarrely distorted. Is there any way I can edit the tracks to make them playable? I'm a mac user so I'm limited to Audacity and iTunes at the moment. Thanks in advance everybody!

Which tracks exactly are you having a problem with?

Ah thanks, it's the Spyro: A Hero's Tail PS2 rip. It's warped in both spotify and itunes.

The tracks have a 32Khz sample rate, unfortunately, apple products are incapable of playing valid MP3 files with a 32Khz sample rate. So the MP3s are unusable for you, and you have to download the original emu files and convert them with a 32Khz->44Khz converter.

Or you can wait for me to do it, but I wouldn't hold my breath, I'm only gonna start updating the site at around end of May

Thanks! I'll keep that option in mind. I'm just grateful a resource like this exists in the first place. What converter would you reccomend?
