Imported M4a audio file is distorted
I have imported a voice memo recording from my iPhone 12 which is a M4a audio file and it sounds completely distorted as the entire text has been compressed and sped up. The audio file itself has the same length as on iTunes or Media Player, but the actual text has been compressed.
Audio file in iTunes: 29 sec (it plays fine there):
When imported into Hitfilm Express, the audio file's length iss till 29 sec in total but the text has been compressed into around 8 secs:
Can pls someone tell me what to do?
