I have many PCM files to check one by one, the original sample rate is 16000.

But when I trying to open them in audittion, I need to choose the sample rate from defaulted 8000 to 16000 for every file...

How can I change the default sample rate? Or can it save my latest choice?

Don't quite understand what your problem is here. If I open a 16k sample rate file, it opens immediately and the output is resampled on playback to whatever the sound device sample rate is set to. And that's a Windows setting, not an Audition one.

 

So what is your sound device default set to?

This problem is happened when importing a PCM file, which doesn't have wave header.

So it needs to select the original sample rate on the opening pannel.

So it's being treated as a RAW file - I understand. What you should do is batch process all the files so that they have a wav header - there's no way Audition can open them automatically otherwise.

Yes, What I said is when importing a RAW/PCM file. Audition can't open them automatically, but need to specify the sample rate, channels, encoding, like below:

I totally understand this is correct. 

My willing is if I can change the default sample rate to 16000 or others in above panel. Or it can save my latest choice.

Because most of RAW files on my hands are 16000, and I can't process them to add a wav header...

So if I can't change the default setting, I need to set the sample rate manually file by file when I need to open them and check the content...

And sorry my English is not that good... but if you ever used cool edit, you may very easily understand my request 🙂

Unfortunately for you it doesn't work quite the way Cool Edit used to - the software has been rewritten several times since then, and all sorts of minor changes have happened on the way - some of them not that helpful. Cool Edit didn't use Microsoft's file handling processes to a large extent, and used its own. But since then, the code has been rewritten in C++, and it relies very much on using the built-in OS command structure for file handling. And there are clearly some limitations on what can be done.

 

As far as batch processing files to add headers is concerned, you might like to look at EZ Meta Tag Editor which I believe will let you do group edits. This is not something I've tried myself, but it looks as though it might be able to help you.
