Recordings are messages which will be played as part of an attendant menu or announcement.
In order to upload a new recording, choose the "Resources" tab and choose "Create new Resource" from the top of the page. From the list of resources choose "Recording" and then click the green button on the right to "Create a New Recording." You will be prompted for a name for the recording and a file. The name is how the recording will be referenced, e.g. "Main Greeting" for the main greeting recording. Choose the "Browse..." button to find the file on your system. Please see below for preferred file format and some audio processing software.
Uploaded files must be a WAV file (PCM, 8,000hz and 16 bit stereo) and cannot exceed 60 seconds in length. The file must not exceed 5MB.
We have had success using WavePad to convert files to the above file type.
When you sign up for a new OnSIP account, a number of recording resources are built automatically:
recording.management is the name of the Recording Manager, which can be reached by dialing *94 from any OnSIP registered phone. You can also attach an internal extension or inbound phone number to the recording manager. When you call the recording manager, you will be asked for your PIN number (in this case 6113) and then the message number you want to record. The pre-recorded messages are message number 1 and 2. So as to not over-write those messages, start your message number at message number 3 or higher.
Note: The Recording Manger will only register the first 60 seconds of a recording. Anything after the first 60 seconds will be cut off.
When you use the Recording Manager to create a Recording, the resulting file will be saved with a Name of today's date and the time you recorded the message. Simply choose the recording and choose "modify" in the lower right corner to change the recording name.
Important: Message number #1 and #2 are pre-recorded. When it prompts you for a message number, start with message #3. Press # to save your recording.
The message number is found in the recording details section of each recording resource.
