I'm experiencing a strange slow motion in the sounds effects, the are played very slow and they sound distorted. It happens when font.wav or boot.wav is played and in every sound when the proffie is on. First I thought a battery issue but the problem remains after the battery change. So I thought about the SD , but the issue remains also with a different SD card. The issue happens also when there is no SD card, the error messages from proffie are in slow motion as well. Serial monitor is not showing anything strange. Btw I'm experiencing this on proffieOS6 and proffieOS5 I think it might be a short somewhere but I couldn't find it.
Anyone has any experience with this kind of issue?
First, you should check for shorts on the board. I know that symptom happens if a finger is laid across certain components. Secondly, or maybe just do it first, make sure you've updated your Arduino Proffieboard plug-in to version 3.6.0. That's done under Arduino menu Tools>Board>Boards Manager, search for proffie in the search box.
I've seen something like this happen when something interferes with the clock crystal circuit on the board. When that happens the board switches to an internal clock generator, which I think runs at 48Mhz instead of the normal 80Mhz. The clock circuit is made up of a crystal and two capacitors (Y1, C7, C8) It's fairly sensitive, so something touching the components can interfere with it, even if it's only slightly conductive. (When this happened to me, it was because I touched it with my fingers.)

Obi-Shane: Post in the proffie section and see if someone could help you out. That would be my advice
