Default Re: Will these old tapes be playable?

Pitch changing in Audacity should work fine, however, since the playback tone correction curves don't necessarily follow the same octave (1:2 ratio) change as the actual speed, the tone correction will be slightly incorrect after a pitch change. This could be corrected with a subsequent equalization; someone may even have calculated the required equalization required. The discrepancy is not that large so it will not be that noticeable on man recordings though.
