What I was referring to was being able to record what comes from SB 
Live's Hardware Wavetable output (directly) to an audio file. So while 
I'm triggering the sounds in the Hardware Wavetable (with My keyboard 
controller), the output is not only being directed out to the speakers, 
but I'm recording it directly to a WAV file (using ecasound) while I 
play. This is done by enabling the "capture mode" on the "Music" slider 
(in alsamixer). Press the "space bar" while the "Music" slider is 
highlighted. You should see "CPTUR" above the "Music" slider. I've used 
this approach to record the wavetable output with several recording
