VOICE PATH - HANDSET AUDIO TAP
Record FROM and Send Audio TO a Telephone's Handset Jack
Works with PCs, Recorders, PA Systems and Audio Mixers
This convenient single box lets you record from a phone's handset, and play back to the phone through the handset. The pushbutton switch on the box lets you turn off the mic in the handset when you want to transmit audio into your phone, so it won't pick up background noise.
Great for playing voice prompts from a PC or CD player to your voice mail system or IVR!
Just plug it between the handset cord and the phone, and plug in either or both of the 3.5mm plugs for send or receive into the PC or other audio device.
Because the Voice Path outputs the same audio you hear on your handset, which has exactly the right mix of your voice and the caller's voice, your recordings will sound great!
If you were to record directly from a regular phone line instead of the handset, your voice is would be much louder than the caller's voice, making the recordings difficult to listen to.
The Voice Path has a switch that lets you use a phone with an electret, dynamic or carbon transmitter - any phone with a handset, and a dial in the base. It won't work with Trimline style (dial-in-handset) or Cordless phones.
To record or broadcast the audio from the phone line to a PC or PA system, everything you hear on the phone line will be output to the 3.5mm Stereo Cord. Connect it to a tape recorder, PC sound card Line In or Mic In, or a 600 ohm line level input on a PA amplifier (it will probably work OK on an unbalanced mic input).
To play the audio from a PC or PA system into the phone, all of the audio sent to the 3.5mm Stereo Cord will be heard by the person on the phone line. Connect it to the headset jack on a tape recorder, Line Out or Speaker Out on a PC sound card, or a 600 ohm line level output on a PA amplifier (don't connect it to a 70V speaker line output, but it will probably work OK on an 8 ohm speaker output).
If you understand mix-minus, you can use the Voice Path with a mixer with (an AUX output) to produce a professional call-in show (there are various video tutorials on mix-minus on youtube... some good and some bad).
Because the Voice Path is transformer isolated, it will prevent hum in your recordings and over a PA system. If you hear a hum with your current telephone line audio coupling method, you need the Voice Path will get rid of it!
