you muted the mic input? usually you can mute an input and still
recdord it. I think whether this really works is somewhat hardware/
driver dependent. at any rate, unmute this until you get something,
then try muting it.
probably record.mic should not be 0. that looks like a monoaural

well, the auvia devices I have don't record at all. most likely there
is just some input switched with some output, since I have to plug
my speakers into the mic jack to get audio. still haven't figured that
anyway, if the above suggestions don't help, I would also suggest
trying a different encoding, like slinear_le and using /dev/sound
instead of /dev/audio. mulaw is emulated on auvia.
