When I try to resample an audio file I go to track->resample then set the new sample rate and the sample rate appears as the changed one then I click file->export and save it as wav. When I open the file again and it still shows the old sample rate although the sound sounds different as it was resampled. Why is that happening?

Well there is a bug in audacity so that's why this is happening. In order to change the sample rate you need to use a different program.

At the bottom, you will find "Project Rate". You need to change this number before exporting the file.

Can you expand your answer a little--exactly where to find it? Thanks. – fixer1234 Dec 13 '14 at 0:04
