I'm not worried about that case.  I'm more worried about my current 
recording project.  I've got a song file from my guitar player.  I'll 
be playing drums along with that track.  His track will be at the 
play rate, and my drums will start at the record rate and then be 
played back at the play rate.  My concern is that when played back 
together, that the drums and guitar will drift apart by the end of 
the song.  The only way to know I suppose is to try it.  I've fought 
this sort of thing before, but between recording devices, not on one 
device by itself.
