Command Line Sound Program

  Date: Dec 04    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 542

I thought I'd use my Ubuntu machine to record an audio
file or two via a cron schedule but it seems Gnome Sound
Recorder doesn't have a command line interface. A quick
check in the documentation and it appears Audacity doesn't

Are there any sound programs out there that have a command
line interface? Or perhaps one that supports start and
stop scheduling?

Issue the commands:
$ man gnome-sound-recorder
$ man 7 gtk-options
$ man 7 gnome-options
$ gnome-sound-recorder --help
$ gnome-sound-recorder --help-all
$ gnome-sound-recorder --help-gtk
$ gnome-sound-recorder --help-gst

Not much, but that is all there is. Looks like the options are more for
debugging than operational control of sound recording.
