Are you referring to analog or SPDIF output?  For digital output use iecset:

rlrevell at mindpipe:~$ iecset rate 44100
Mode: consumer
Data: audio
Rate: 44100 Hz
etc.

rlrevell at mindpipe:~$ iecset rate 48000
Mode: consumer
Data: audio
Rate: 48000 Hz
etc.

Apps that change this are supposed to reset it to the original value
when finished but often they don't...
