I'd check the frame rate and the sampling rate of the audio. Check under the File > Interpret footage > Main.

I've recently had a similar issue. When I start an audio preview, it will play back faster and higher pitched. But if I stop it and start the preview again it will sound fine. I don't have an answer for you, just wanted you to know you're not the only one!

In addition to Brian's advice which will probably solve the problem, here's an additional question: is the audio compressed?

AE 10 may have virtually eliminated the problems of compositing long-gop VIDEO footage, but it's still susceptible to problems with the footage's AUDIO track if the audio is compressed. If it's something like AC3 or Mp3, simply export new audio in wav or aiff, turn off the original audio track in your comp, and use the uncompressed audio.

And as always, check for the latest updates to AE 10. A new one came out last week, and the update is free.

Hi there!

I was struggling with exactly the same issue, and it drove me nuts! To make matters worse, I have a job I'm working on, and NEED to animate in AE. So I searched the net. Disappointingly there was nothing on the net. So I searched and searched until I at last found the solution. And what a no-brainer it was. Guess sometimes we think we're so experienced, we fail to check the basics.

Check your Ram-preview, on mine the FPS was set to 30. Apparently this happens if you mistakenly use the "ins" key on the keyboard:D

Now all's fine, hope it helps!

Cheers!

Changing the preview timing from "Auto" to 29.97 fixed it for me, even though auto was detecting "(29.97)". Looks like a bug fix to me.
