Two options in my mind:
1) You can adjust volume in TAB --> Slider Menu to 0.00 so that the Votrax is not heard. For many people, this is an acceptable solution for now.
2) Download MAME 0.180 and earlier for games which use Votrax and had samples for the previous experience. An alternative binary can properly be maintained in your current MAME folder if it is renamed something like "mame64_180.exe" so the current is always "mame64.exe"
