My problem is a sound card issue. The Audigy simply refuses to record
anything from the mic port. Regardless of the fact that I can hear it
back through the speakers.

The program arecord picks nothing up. Alsa Volume settings checked a
zillion times, tabbed through and checked Capture as well as Playback.
Still no resolve. My guess is that a new version of alsa will fix

"The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those
who sang best."
