basic-tutorial-3: Add audioresample

If the sink chosen by autoaudiosink doesn't do resampling internally,
the pipeline may fail. In this specific case, someone on Windows had
configured their sound card to 96000 instead of 48000 and the tutorial
was failing.

Thanks to Olivi55 from IRC for reporting.

`audioresample` is useful for converting between different audio sample rates,
similarly making sure that this example will work on any platform, since the
audio sample rate produced by the audio decoder might not be one that the audio
sink supports.
The `autoaudiosink` is the equivalent of `autovideosink` seen in the
previous tutorial, for audio. It will render the audio stream to the
audio card.

Now we will check the type of data this new pad is going to output,
because we are only interested in pads producing audio. We have
previously created a piece of pipeline which deals with audio (an
`audioconvert` linked with an `autoaudiosink`), and we will not be able
to link it to a pad producing video, for example.

`gst_pad_get_current_caps()` retrieves the current *capabilities* of the pad
(that is, the kind of data it currently outputs), wrapped in a `GstCaps`
