Somebody may have changed the header in order to trick an application's automatic SRC into changing the playback speed. I used to do this myself but then I always converted the sample rate of the file.

I just hit this with Samplitude reading a 96k 32 bit float AIFF file that originated on a Mac.

SaraCon read it correctly and I converted it to .wav.

I'm not so sure that the Cubase export sample rate setting performs a SRC. If an 'in the box mix' project is running at say - 48/24bit and you export the mix at 88/32 I'm pretty sure that the file is rendered direct to that sample rate specified. There's certainly no wait after export for the file to convert, so it must be converted 'on the fly' which is not the same thing as a SRC.
Unless I'm mistaken, your client would be better to export the songs at 96/32 or 96/24.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
