You can create QCP files as well as convert them to PCM audio using QUALCOMM's PureVoice Converter, a Windows command line utility. The program QCP Converter can also convert many popular audio formats to QCP files. QUALCOMM also provides the PureVoice SDK which can be used to embed PureVoice functionality into applications.
