I started with one microphone: I bought an external USB audio card and plugged
into the USB port of my computer.  Then I plugged the microphone into the `mic'
input of the card and started Audacity.  From the main menu, I selected the
`USB PnP Sound Device' as recording device, pressed the red button, spoke into
the mic but no sound is recorded: not even the usual wave forms are shown.
Neither with socks nor arecord can I record my voice from that USB card.  Any
idea...?

Thanks,
