Re: [bbshop] In need of a key key
- If your turntable is rotating too fast, either you are using a 50Hz
turntable on 60Hz power or the turntable is defective. If it's a 50Hz
turntable, contact the manufacturer or a repair station because a different
drive wheel should be available. If it's defective, the turntable is
probably not holding a steady speed, so you don't want to try to fix it
digitally as it will still not sound right.
That being said, it is not unusual for finished (vinyl) records to be
slightly faster or slower than the original performance. The recording
devices of that era were all mechanical (tape, cutting turntables) and there
was often variations in their speed because of slight imperfections in the
devices and also the power company often made slight variations in the
controlling frequency to make sure all clocks kept proper time.

- Many thanks to the folks who wrote to let me know that the Four
Renegades sang Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone in
the key of C#/Db on the 1965 Top Ten album.
Now I can convert my albums to CD without having it sound as
though Ambiance mated with The Chipmunks.

- Here's a website where you can print out a strobe disk to check that turntable speed. http://www.vinylengine.com/strobe-discs.shtml
