comment Reference tuning pitch
It's very unlikely that CDs would play back at the wrong speed (except on specialist hardware designed to do that). Vinyl and tapes, yes - they ran off mechanical motors that could very much vary in speed. But not CDs

Consider making your question much more specific than "please give me some general advice on the subject". As it stands it risks being closed as "not a real question". See the FAQ.

comment When we sing loudly does volume change or pitch?
@ToddWilcox - subtle complications are probably not helpful to the OP, though. They're struggling to understand the basics.
