Hi there everyone, I just got a new computer and redownloaded my Cubase 9.5 on it. I am having an issue where if I export a file or send the audio output through a speaker, it alters the pitch and tempo of the audio file. Any idea why this might be happening? Thank you!

sample rate mismatch - check that the 44.1 isn't swapped with 48KHz - this is the usual time and tempo mismatch. 98KHz is around double so amazingly fast or slow, and an octave adrift - so less common. it sometimes happens when a replay device is fixed to a sample rate and you accidentally export at the wrong one! Probably a preference in the old system not picked on the new one.

Are you not using a proper interface? Some of the onboard audio systems have such badly designed drivers there's no way to know why it's behaving oddly - I bet with a proper audio interface it will be fine. Check to see if there is a newer driver available is my only suggestion if you really intend using it - but they're usually pretty dreadful quality and interface is the only solution for decent audio quality.
