pavucontrol works as expected with the monitor source, so does pacat:

	pacat -r -d foo.monitor > recording.pcm

If you don't know your sink/source name, use the "list-sources"
command or inspect verbose output of the daemon while starting up.

You need to convert it to WAV (or anything else) afterwards, which
should be fairly simple using `sox':

	sox -c 2 -r 44100 -s -2 -t raw recording.pcm \
	                        -t wav recording.wav

(You can, of course, play with the recording format and specify
something different for both `pacat' and `sox'.
