Recording Sound Files

When recording sound files for greetings and audio files, you want to make sure you use the right sample rate.  If you use a sample rate that is too high, your callers will hear feedback/static.  You want to record your greetings as an 8 kHz 16 bit mono WAV file

If you have existing sound files that are not in this format, you use one of the free conversion tools that can be found in places like www.download.com to reformat your audio files. I've used a product from Audacity that works very well http://www.download.com/Audacity/3000-2170_4-10058117.html

I have a couple files from Vanessa that need to be changed to 8 kHz 16 bit mono WAV file.  The files appear in Audacity as Mono 44100Hz 16-bit.  Can you share the steps when using Audacity on how to get them to 8kHz?  It seems that when I try to record, another track is created in the sample rate.
