When I play my composition in RAM Playing, the sound of my composition is being slowed down a lot, so it is completely changed, but in my render the sound plays at the correct speed...

My After Effects version is CS6. My computer's configuration:

  • 12 GB RAM memory,
  • Intel Core i5 3.4GHz
  • nVidia Geforce GTS450
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits

Here is a recorder video that will help you to understand the problem:

What is the problem? What else do you need to understand my problem, or to help me with it?

Thanks in advance!

Have you checked your RAM Preview options?

RAM Preview options

If auto is selected, your frame rate might be modified. Set it to your comp's frame rate.

What's your sound file's format? Can you give us your encoding settings for your final render? – Inan Berbatov Nov 28 '12 at 21:46
I can provide you all thr information. But I repeat, I have no problems with the sound in the final render. – Victor Nov 29 '12 at 6:31
If you are using a sound card try to change the audio settings of AE. Under Audio Hardware, try setting it to System Default Input/Output, if selected, switch the others, I mean try them. If nothing changes, you can purge your caches by selecting Edit > Purge > All. If you are using a compressed file format like MP3, try using a WAV. Actually, I have never met this problem yet, but we can find a solution. – Inan Berbatov Nov 29 '12 at 19:06
