I have an iMac with the Pandora Mac desktop app installed. Today it started playing music with a reduced tempo and dropped pitch. I use this computer to run music recording software and recently set the clock speed for audio to 48,000 Hz and 24 bit sampling. Could this have something to do with the change? This setting is accessed through the Audio Midi Setup in Utilities. Same Pandora settings on my iPhone 11 produce music with the correct tempo.
You can try changing your clock speed for audio back to the original level as a test to see if that changes anything. I've also included some troubleshooting steps in case you're interested in trying those out.
Pandora Desktop App for MAC computers:

If that doesn't correct the issue, please try uninstalling and reinstalling the Pandora app. Again, we'll keep track of your collection for you. To do that:
Close the Pandora app.
Open a newFinderwindow.
Find the Pandora app and drag it to theTrashbin.
Right click the Trash bin and selectEmpty Trash.
You can then use the following steps to reinstall the app:
