The Gnome sound recorder comes from the gnome-media package. A command line application sound-recorder provides an alternative method of recording sounds.

The rawrec package provides a useful command line recorder and might be used to record to a 320kbps mp3 as in:



  $ time rawrec -t 3600 | \
    sox -t sw -r 44100 -c 2 - -t wav - | \
    lame --alt-preset insane - recording.mp3

The gramofile application is more useful for recording from vinyl LPs, for example. It also supports track splitting and filtering to remove the traditional vinyl `pop'. For editing the sound signal use the graphical audacity application.
