Recording IVR sound clips using a SIP / IP telephone

I'm looking for a way to create good sounding IVR menu recordings for my hosted VoIP solution.

In the past, I've been able to use an Asterisk server + FreePBX, and it had a little built in feature code that "recorded" a message I could speak, and save it as a recording for the IVR.

However, I'm not using an asterisk server anymore. I'm connecting directly to my VoIP service provider - VoIP.ms. They currently don't have any such feature.

Using a webcam microphone and basic .WAV file authoring software like Audacity results in a terrible sounding clip, so I'd prefer to use my phone to make the recording if possible

What would be the easiest way to use my SIP IP phone to record these messages? Is there any standalone SIP-based recording software out there?

Get a USB headset. Use this with Audacity set to 8kHz mono. We use this to record the IVR recordings for our customers. If you leave audacity set to 44kHz stereo, the conversion will lose a lot of the quality.

Hi,
If codec g.711 is used you could make a wireshark trace while doing a call to another number. That trace would include the spoken rtp stream which you can extract with wireshark and convert to a wav file.

If you get Voicemails back via email. Just leave yourself a voicemail. Most hosted voip providers support voicemail to email (at least they should, we have for years).
