@ctrl-alt-delor suggested vlc to read the files that are being manipulated. if i pair that with gnome-sound-recorder, i should have a quick solution.
however, this is not true on kali. lots of errors very quickly. @RomeoNinov , @ctrl-alt-delor , and @K7AAY , have all pointed out that kali is not the right distro and they are right.
I will be trying this solution with debian
final update: playing audio files from either sound recorder or gnome-sound-recorder results in crashes 100% of the time for debian testing. solution: dont open audio files with the recorder. open with vlc and everything will be okay.
- i used debian testing and succeeded
- kali experienced the same problems, so it likely has the same solutions.
- it probably doesnt matter what distro you are on so long as you can get vlc and an audio recorder
