Good app for making IVR audio prompts?

Unanswered Question

I understand that audio prompts used with various Tcl IVR scripts have to be 8-bit, u-law, 8khz encoding and saved in "au" format. Can anyone recommend a good (preferably cheap or free) application that can create audio files in this format and ideally convert other audio formats to meet these specs as needed?

I'm currently using Cool Edit Pro. The newer version is a little more expensive but it has a bunch of options if you really want to get into splicing. The problem is adobe has renamed it and I have no clue how the new version is. If you can find a vendor selling the old ver it should do you good.

Hi Steven,

Just to add a note to the excellent info you received from Marcus. The product is now named Adobe Audition. Here is a link, it's quite pricey $$ but very good :)

Hope this helps!
