I would like to improve the sound quality of my telephony programs vis-a-vis higher quality (and disk space) sound files particularly for outgoing messages.  I currently am using Zoltrix and US Robotics modems (56kvoice).  Is there any way around the compression built-ins that come with such modems?  Is there a way to at least upgrade to 16 bit/11,000 mhz mono  and higher for outgoing messages and replace prerecorded files?  I have tried alot of software......supervoice pro, comunicate pro, rapidcomm etc.  Please advise!!!!

Is your modem have it's own microphone jack ? Zoltrix is poor in sound quality, i'm pretty sure that you'll see a improuvement if you use the mic modem jack insted.

The reason for this it's because your software need to convert your sound files to the format it need. If you use the modem jack, no convertion.

Good luck !

Undoubtedly, conversion robs sound quality but if the hardware is limited to 7200 8 bit mono for Zoltrix and 6.10 GSM 8000 mono for US Robotics, what sound improvement can we expect simply by using the modems mic-in jack instead of sound card?
I will certainly try the above solution, (although I think I already have) I also will try handset versus mic...........I really need to know whose hardware supports higher quality files.........

For sure, your best quality sound for answering software is the modem jack or handset better then sound card
