I was wondering, if someone has already played around with Codec2 by David Rowe.

The codec delivers impressive quality at 1500bps. I wonder what container I should use for archiving, as I don't have an interactive software that uses Codec2 right now. I wonder how I can run some tests with it, as I don't know of any decoder software right now.

Anyways, would be nice to know if this actually got any public exposure at all.

The latest codec2 2000 bps produces the same quality as G.729 8000 bps (the second most used codec in basic telephony) and close to AMR-NB at the same 8000 bps.
It means it has a real-life telephone quality just at 2000 bps. 4x times more efficient than G.729 . Now, that's impressive.
