unusual file

hi guys, i’ve come across a file that i can’t work out how to use. It appears to be a .VOX but i can’t get it to play properly. I’ve opened it in a number of different programs using the same settings and after applying a high pass filter i can recognise the sound underneath, but theres still a more noise than signal… any suggestions?

So you posted a little bit of it so we can inspect it? Or supplied the URL?


Extract from a quick search of t’interweb:

"vox - the vox format most commonly uses the Dialogic ADPCM (Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation) codec. Similar to other ADPCM formats, it compresses to 4-bits. Vox format files are similar to wave files except that the vox files contain no information about the file itself so the codec sample rate and number of channels must first be specified in order to play a vox file. Vox a very old file type and is pretty poor. We do not recommend it for anything except for supporting legacy systems. "

And this site offers a .VOX converter http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Best/play-_vox-file.html - but beware as McAfee Site Advsior says that this site may have adware/spyware.
