recording audio under Linux
The blog is the place to remember what I always forget. Here is a note how to record a mp3 on my system.
0. Plug the microphone jack into the socket on the back side, not on the front panel.
1. Load all the required drivers
# modprobe snd-hda-intel # modprobe snd_pcm_oss # modprobe snd_seq_oss
1b. Setup mixer. (aumix)
arecord -f cd test.wav
3. Convert to mp3
ffmpeg -i test.wav test.mp3
