It changed the sound card sample rate to a higher one in order to give you
better recording quality. Some other (broken) applications can't cope, and
don't give you any error message ar all.

It has made no alteration to your system files, merely requested a
settings change on your hardware. You can reverse this by opening the
Apple Audio and Midid settings utility and changing the sample rate back
to something bog standard that bugg, bog standard software can cope with,
This issue is addressed in the pre-release available here:
it has an option in the prefernces to "Do not modify audio device settings
(such as sample rate)" which will ensure that your sound card settings are
not altered from within audcaity.
