Here is the output of my record, you can see no resampling is enabled.
But it take still more CPU when playback. On playback without resmapling
pa use ~1% on record ~5%.
The command i use for record is:
gst-launch-0.10 pulsesrc ! audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100 ! speexenc !
oggmux ! filesink location=foo.oga
1 source outputs(s) available.
source: 1 <alsa_input.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo>
current latency: 0,00 ms
requested latency: 46,00 ms
sample spec: s16le 2ch 44100Hz
channel map: front-left,front-right
resample method: (null)
owner module: 8
client: 50 <gst-launch-0.10>

Thank you, the answer was clear.
Now i need to test what is cheaper: to reasample by pa or by aplication.
