A few suggestions:
1) Leave the recordinput as is, dflt (default), and set the input source
using the sound control panel if necessary.
2) Try using 'set the recording to false'..instead of 'stop recording'.
Both should work..but stop recording is undocumented.
3) Check the result of the record command.

record sound file tPath
if the result is not empty then answer result
