Recording Audio-in


It has been a while since I've really worked on a linux system, and a lot has changed.

I have a debian system, currently soundless, that I would like to add a sound card to and have record off of line-in at specific times. For example, from 1pm-2pm.

Remembering from the old days that I could just cat /dev/something to a file, I tried that. No luck.

So I started digging around and I'm finding references to "ALSA". Is this the new audio standard for linux?

If so, is there an easy command-line way to command it to record something-- keep in mind that I'm trying to have it record dependant on clock time, so a GUI isn't useful. (the box is also monitorless)

Thanks for any help
