RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for record (redhat section 1)

record(1)										record(1)

       record - records *.wav files

       record [ options ]

       record  records	*.wav files in CD quality (i.e. 44100 Hz, 16bit, stereo).  It has a input
       level meter, which might be useful for sound trouble shooting (check if the mixer settings
       ok for recording from the TV card etc.)

       -h     display help text

       -o file
	      basename	for  the  output  file(s),  a  number and the .wav extention are added by
	      record.  Default is "record".

       -i dev mixer control.  This should be the one where you can adjust the  record  level  for
	      your  audio source.  Default is "line".  "mic" and "igain" are good candidates too.
	      Best way to figure is to start your favorite mixer tool and  check  out  which  one
	      works ...

       -m dev set mixer device.  Default is "/dev/mixer".

       -d dev set audio device.  Default is "/dev/dsp".

       -r rate
	      set sample rate.	Default is 44100.

       -p sec peak  seconds  (number  of seconds which should be scanned for the volume maximum).
	      This affects both peak level display and level  triggered  recording  (see  below).
	      Default is 1.5 seconds.

       record can also be used non-interactive:

       -c     enable console (non-interactive) mode.

       -v     be verbose (console mode only).

       -t mm:ss
	      Limit the record time (console mode only).  By default record records until stopped
	      by a signal (by typing ^C for example).

       -s size
	      Limit the file size (console mode only).	record will continue with a new file once
	      the limit is reached.

       -l     Enable level triggered recording (console mode only) with the default trigger level

       -L level
	      Enable level triggered recording with the specified trigger level.

       If level triggered recording is active, record will start and stop recording depending  on
       the  signal strength.  Recording will be started if the signal strength is above the trig-
       ger level (1000/32768 => around 3%).  Recording will be stopped if the signal is below the
       trigger level for some time (1.5 seconds by default, the -p switch changes this).
