Hello Kenneth,

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.

Title:		    paudio
Version:	    0.1
Entered-date:	    13JAN98
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!).
