The sample configs really eed work. Having said that, the ices-live.xml
should show you how to do this. You could of course get the hardware to
capture at 11khz, assuming it can (most can). But if not, try something
<!-- stereo->mono downmixing, enabled by setting this to 1 -->
That's taken from a config I use, so obviously change it for your needs.
Actually, 22khz at quality -1 will probably fit your bandwidth
requirements, but if you want to go with 11khz, I'd suggest using a higher
quality value than -1. Experiment and see what you end up with.
