Ok, so here is the deal. I am recording the voice for a companies Phone Messaging System, their phone company is telling me that the recording needs to be in CCITT u-law, 8.000khz, 8 Bit, Mono format. I am using Cubase 5 to record and i have tried this: I tried exporting the recorded file as the 8.000khz, 8 bit, mono with cubase and there was this static noise in the background that came with it. The regular format export was fine. I also tried this, i exported it as a high quality .wav and coverted it with switch coverter to 8.000khz, 8bit, mono. This was clear and no static but when the voice said S's is sounds as if he has a strong lisp (which there is no lisp on the original copy) Are there certain techniques i could use to help this? or software to fix this? or am i doing something totally wrong? I am unable to post samples yet, I will have to wait till later tonight when i get home.
