Thanks for the help. I tried this to record from my tape deck and got a
recording - it was really distorted on peaks (like snare hits). So it is
probably just a dynamic range issue of the dd/*.au combination.
So why can't I get anything from ecasound?
Would it be better if I installed the ALSA driver for my sound card?
