Look at the 'record sound' command in Rev 1.1.  It is easy to record 
using syntax like this:

     record sound file defaultFolder & "/" & <sndName> with best quality

Be sure to provide a button or some other control with the command:

     stop recording

There are a few refinements you can make, but this is the guts of it.
