    sorry if the question is dumb,
    but I cannot find a way to interact - via Perl - with the soundcard input,
    to record audio from the microphone.
    There is some module out there that can help me here???

    thanks!

    To get you started, read this article from The
    Perl Journal and System Administrators Magazine:

    thanks,
    that's just what I needed, I already started experimenting...
    if I may add a further question...
    I'm finding that I have some kinds of volume problems on the mike,
    although I raised up 100% the levels via aumix.
    I mean that with my mike I can record without problems my voice if I
    speak almost to contact to the mike, but... what I wanted was a system
    able to record any sound/voice/music in a room.
    Is it possible, or have I to buy some kind of specialized device?

    thanks for your help,

    I don't know, as I have never done this myself.

    However, I suspect that this comes down to the
    sensitivity of the microphone itself rather than
    the software used to process the sound.

    Typical computer microphones are very
    insensitive and (I can't remember what it's
    called) only supposed to capture sounds
    from very close up.

    You will probably need a specialised microphone.

    In any case, this problem has nothing to do
    with Perl anymore.

    I hope this helps.
