If you use ecasound as I recommended (and not the much less reliable
arecord that's all the rage in this thread's recent mails), you can
just replace .wav with .ogg in your command line and you will get a
compressed ogg-file recording instead. Same with mp3, if you have
configured an encoder in ecasoundrc.
