       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 extension 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.

       -n num Limit  the  file  count  (console mode only).  record will stop recording after num

       -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
       trigger 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).
