Default Light-weighted voice recorder

Hi

I'm looking for a light-weighted voice recorder (for quick note taking).

I've tried most of the CLI tools, the problem is that none of them have
the "pause" feature that I need during recording.

I also know many others,
http://xpt.sourceforge.net/techdocs/media/audio/ad04-SoundRecording/
but haven't find a good (simple) one yet. E.g,

I know that Audacity is "the" tools, but it is too heavy-weighted for
quick voice note taking: multi-track audio editor, digital effects, etc.

In brief, I hope there is a tools like window sound recorder, which is as
simple as possible, but can let me pause during recording.

Thanks

Hi Tong.

MhWaveedit perhaps. I think it's available from the repo's, and does have
pause/resume for recording. Link below if it's not available from the repo.

https://gna.org/projects/mhwaveedit/

All the best.

Nigel.

Have you looked at Ecasound?

ecasound -i /dev/dsp -o mynotes.wav -c
ecasound -i alsa,default -o mynotes.wav -c

Then you can start and stop recording using 't' (start) and
's' (stop).

Thanks everyone for the reply.

Nigel's recommendation, MhWaveedit, is exactly what I am looking for --
as simple as possible. Ecasound is powerful, but it's almost 5 times
bigger than MhWaveedit, and presumably can't view wave diagram, as
MhWaveedit does, since its interface is ncurses.

Thanks all the same.

MhWaveedit is in an interesting program. I'll probably be
using it in future myself.
