I asked this question as well to this list a couple of months ago and
was advised to use paudio - here is a quick description. It will allow
you to save the sound to a wave file and then you can use your favourite
encoder to convert it to a mp3 file.
Description: paudio, or /proc/audio, is a file that
when read from, will return the data that is
currently being written to the audio device
(/dev/audio or /dev/dsp). This is useful if an
audio application doesn't allow you to save an
audio file. Note that to use this effectively,
a moderate knowledge of Linux modules is needed,
as well as a moderate knowledge of digital audio
techniques. Feel free to email me with
questions (although I gaurentee no answers!).
