Eh? No to what? Alsa? I am not really sure. In strace I can see 'rec'
uses ioclt which could implies that it is talking directly to
hardware.

Below was captured while running:
arecord -c 1 -r 44100 -f S16 arec01.wav

I got a strange error message from arecord while recording at rate 44100:
overrun!!! (at least 0.188 ms long)
overrun!!! (at least 0.190 ms long)
overrun!!! (at least 0.191 ms long)

Could this be a clue?

The error does occur with rate 8000 8bit (the default).

Options like this?
strace -tt -o arec.log arecord -c 1 -r 44100 -f S16 -M arec.wav
