Before we talk more about the sound recorder, I will explain some features of Audio Recorder:
  1. It can start recording on sound or either voice automatically.
  2. As opposite it can stop recording on silence automatically.
  3. Records from webcam, sound card, browser, microphone and so on.
  4. Buil-in timer: You can determine when the Audio Recorder has to start, stop, or pause in the recording process.
  5. Support many formats like mp2, mp3, OGG, m4a, flac, spx and wav.
  6. It can record our Skype calls without any user interaction.
Use these commands to install Audio Recorder in Ubuntu:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:osmoma/audio-recorder
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install audio-recorder

To get various formats recording, we need to install some Gstreamer plugins: "good" for Wav and Flac, ugly/multiverse for mp3, base for OGG, and bad/multiverse for AAC and m4a. Type in this command:
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse

To make the Audio Recorder records our Skype calls automatically, check the "Remember this selection" box and select "Yes" when Skype asks to authorize Audio Recorder.
