Mumble is a free, open-source, cross-platform voice over IP low-latency, high-quality voice communication tool. It has great options and performance like very low latency, denoising of audio, automatic volume control, echo cancelation, connection and speech encryption, compression / quality control within the client and a lot more... It uses a client-server architecture where users who want to talk connect to the same server , and it uses Celt and Speex as the codecs.
