having never tried arecord I tried it out - on lenny there seems to be
a problem in that it can't open the device. I haven't had a microphone
hooked up to this system (I have a SBLive card) in quite sometime -
since before the move in May, and this used to work.
I was about to suggest audacity, but that didn't work either - still
tells me that it cant open the sound device.
Of course, the thing has played sound with no problems - it's just
that I haven't had a need to use the microphone, but figured I might
as well give it a try.
What do you get using rec?
