Lee I recommend you use the MixMonitor application along with a combination
of Playback to play your message to the Calling party and the A argument to
Dial to play a file to the called party.

So for your outbound calls:

exten => _NXXXXXX,1,NoOP()
same =>                 n,MixMonitor(recording-${CDR(UNIQUEID)}.wav)
same =>
same =>

While your inbound calls would look like

exten => s,1,NoOP()
same  =>   n,Answer()
same =>    n,MixMonitor(recording-${CDR(UNIQUEID)}.wav)
same  =>   n,Playback(this-call-may-be-monitored-or-recorded)
same  =>

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher
a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts,
build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders,
cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure,
program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.
