I might  have missunderstood your question - I used some years ago 
arecord and ecasaound
and worked fine for me - those were just alternatives to find one that 
answers your question.
I assume that you use alsa driver - check at 
http://www.alsa-project.org/ haw well is
supported your sound card.
If an application , say Sound Record does not work, you'll have to give 
more informations -
start the application in a terminal and also look in to 
/var/logs/messages for significant informations
to include in your 
question.(http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html).
