I use the following script to record on linux, it also compresses the
file into an mp3 file:


#/bin/sh
if [ "a$1" != "a" ]
then
	NOW="$1"
else
	NOW=`date '+%Y%m%d%H%M%S'`
fi

FILE=$HOME/recordings/$NOW

TITLE="$FILE.mp3"
ARTIST="`whoami`"
ALBUM="`uname -n`"
YEAR="`date +%Y`"
COMMENT="created by $0 on `date`"
killall esd	# dont ask why
# reset mixer
aumix -L >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
# volume=0 mike=max rec=max
aumix -v 0 -m 100 -m r 
rm -fr /tmp/$$.wav
rec   -r 44100 -c 1 -f U /tmp/$$.wav
lame --tg 25 --tt "$TITLE" --ta "$ARTIST" --tl "$ALBUM" \
     --ty "$YEAR" --tc "$COMMENT" --tn 1 \
      -a -b 32  -h  /tmp/$$.wav ${FILE}.mp3 # -S >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
rm -fr /tmp/$$.wav

# all done reset mixer
aumix -L >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
mp3info -p "%S seconds recorded in ${FILE}.mp3\n" ${FILE}.mp3
exit 0
