I stumbled upon this blog post over the weekend, discovering a very funny Van Halen video from early October, 2007. Apparently, the synthesizer in the opening of the classic Van Halen tune ‘Jump’ started playing at 48K instead of 44.1 K, causing a….bit of a problem when the other instruments came in. Eddie Van Halen tried to adjust, but 48K puts the pitch solidly in the quarter-tone register, making for a horrifically out-of-tune rendition. It’s painful (yet also funny!) to hear them soldier on through the wretched intonation problems.
