Here are samples of some of the musical answering machine messages I recorded in my "home studio", many of which are adapted from popular songs. The song messages are mostly either a cappella (ie. comprising human voices only) or songs with a high harmony content, as I love harmony!

NOTE: These samples are low-quality versions, and most of them are shorterned versions. If you want the full-length, CD-quality versions, then OBTAIN DOWNLOAD ACCESS!! Several hundreds served since March 2001!

  Chef's Suggestions  

Too many answering machine messages to choose from? Here are some suggestions:



Quick note about the files:

  • The Samples are recorded in 11kHz - ie. low quality, so use them only for PREVIEW purposes! The full-length versions you will find on the special download page or the CD are 44kHz (CD quality!), 16 bit, but still mono, as it's not much point playing a stereo file through a telephone line!

  • For all you girls (and guys too, I suppose) who think that size and length matter (...), the full-version files range from lengths of 10 seconds to 38 seconds, but generally are just under or over 30 seconds long. But don't forget the Eleventh Commandment: "Thou shalt not judge a thing by its length"! ;-)

  • Lastly, note that the .wav files are in ADPCM format, not the typical PCM format.  This may give problems in certain instances.  Check out the FAQ for more information.

Enjoyed the answering machine message sound files?

If so, you may express your appreciation in the following ways:

  1. If you're a major recording company, you may sign me up or employ me here (but don't tell my current employers!).
  2. If your name is William Gates or you have too much money, you may give me a million dollars (see bottom of page for methods of payment).
  3. For all other people, you may give me some feedback.

If you didn't enjoy them (Lord forgive you!), then try this site.
