It's saying it failed to initialise the driver. This maybe due to some
limitation of the hardware/driver with respect to the specified
samplerate.  Try 11025 or some other common one like 22050 or 44100 and
resample to the wanted rate.

Set metadata to 1 if you want the metadata to be read from the file.
