Hi folks,

I've been working on and off for the last little while on a command
line recording utility.  It's really basic and the code is pretty
ugly.  It exists partly because in my lazy search I couldn't find
anything that satisfied my particular need, and also because it was
interesting.  I just made a first release, so you could try it if you

The program is called hrec, it's basically a curses front end to a
very limited subset of ecasound's functions.

Code is here:

AUR package is here:

I'm planning to do change it soon, but the basics will remain the
same.  Mostly I plan to remove the playback functionality, as it's
almost useless -- plenty of other software to do it much better.  Also
I need to migrate the code to Python 3, but I'm getting stuck on the
python ecasound bindings.  In the couple of (admittedly not very
thorough) attemps I've made I ran into problems with the current pyeca
module.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Anyway I thought I might as
well release it now and get some feedback.

I hope someone finds hrec useful!

Criticism and insults are also welcome.
