[linux-audio-user] recording jack input

The timemachine's level meter doesn't show db values (or - is it so
for me only :-)). Is there stand-alone jack-enabled level-meter with
peak-measurement capabilities?

Hi Garett. Jack Time Machine will also record whats being played and save it 
as a .wav to your /home/user directory if thats as much as you want.

If you decide to use it you will have to change the command on the desktop 
link to application to:
/usr/bin/timemachine -f wav  , otherwise it saves it as a bit of an obscure 
file format as default. Also there was no icon in Kmenu on Fedora. The icon 
is in /usr/share/timemachine/pixmaps. Nigel.
