These three options were active.

Ok, but I regard the semi-tone as a minor problem.

I have Audigy2 and I simply used

 acreord -f wav -t S16_LE -r 44100 -d 60 -c 2 <file>.wav

With "amixer" I set the "capture" slider to maximum and there
is still a slider "music capture". I set this slider to
maximum, too. That's all.
