Replacing a system recording


I have set up conference bridges and would like to change the system recording (which is in a creepy voice) for the ‘Please enter the conference pin number’ which callers first hear when they call the bridge.

Thanks to a useful post from SkykingOH, I turned on verbose logging, and was able to identify the ulaw file being played.

-- <SIP/nnnn-00000189> Playing 'enter-conf-pin-number.ulaw' (language 'en')

I recorded a new system recording, naming it ‘enter-conf-pin-number’, and saving it as ulaw. It is saved however as custom/enter-conf-pin-number.

What steps can I take to move the replace the old recording with my new one?



Copy it over to the right path. i think it’s in /var/lib/asterisk/sound

Better to use


replace en with your language if not en, there might be more than one version for different codecs,

Thank you both for the replies. dicko, you were correct about the /en directory.

My custom recordings were in: /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/custom

This worked like a charm:

cd /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/custom
cp enter-conf-pin-number.ulaw /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en
