In the off chance you want your asterisk phone switch to sound like a cisco…
Turns out it’s byÂ Darrick A. Deel and Tim Carleton, and it’s calledÂ Opus Number 1. Â It was recorded in Tim’s garage some time in the late 1980’s. Â Darrick works for cisco so it found it’s way into cisco’s call manager.
Phew that was interesting, wasn’t it?
*UPDATE* For those of you interested, a stereo copy has been located! Â I have more information here!
