Can't even begin to tell you unless you can post a few seconds of one of them. I do have one question though - if you play back files you recorded earlier, do these make the same noise, or is it just new ones?
Start by double-checking that you haven't accidentally rendered your file to an 8-bit format.
Files that I made previously play just fine in Audition and in other audio software. It just affects anything that I save now. I've played the newly saved files on different computers with different operating systems in different audio players with the same result. I'd attach a sample file, but this forum doesn't permit it.
This was exactly the problem. Once I changed it back to 32-bit on the files that I hadn't closed yet, all was fine. Thank you very much.
Quick question: How would that setting change? I didn't change it by choice. Is there a keyboard shortcut that I might have accidently hit?

Not that I know of, but I guess there's always the risk of a couple of accidental keystrokes (tab, arrowkeys) changing the selected preset. Just one of those things, I guess.
If it ever happens again, you should probably start paying attention to what actions you perform to provoke it happening, and tell the Audition team about it in a bug report. Intermittent bugs like those can be very hard to track down.
