does playback work? assuping it does, if you run:

aucat -o test.wav

then speak to the microphone during 5 seconds, then hit ^C, then
run:

aucat -i test.wav

what do you hear?

could you post the output of mixerctl -v ?

I found this

http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/openbsd/2010-12/0057.html

but aucat seemed to have changed, at least for me, I 
can't follow the explanation.  

I am running a Thinkpad x220i and I am pretty sure that 
my microphone is supported but I tried a lot of different 
settings with mixerctl, I am not 'there' yet.. 

greetings.

 I did that, but when I do the 
 
 aucat -i test.wav
 
 command, then I can't hear anything.  I also tried 
 
 aucat -c 0:1 -o 1.wav -c 2:3 -o 2.wav -c 4:5 -o 3.wav
 

For this to work, you've to restart sndiod with
the following args -C 0:5 -c 0:3.

But according to mixerctl, all 3 ADCs get their signal from mic2 so
all 3 files would have the same content.

 but nothing for all three files.  
 
  could you post the output of mixerctl -v ?
 
 here is my mixerctl -v output:  
 

First, try to crank all input gains:

mixerctl record.volume=255

 record.adc-0:1_source=mic2  [ sel sel2 mic2 mix ]
 record.adc-2:3_source=mic2  [ sel sel2 mic2 mix ]
 record.adc-4:5_source=mic2  [ sel sel2 mic2 mix ]
 inputs.sel_source=mic  [ mic ]

If it doesn't work, try to use the other mic:

mixerctl record.adc-0:1_source=sel
mixerctl record.adc-2:3_source=sel
mixerctl record.adc-4:5_source=sel

I am not sure which settings must be changed to record with the internal 
microphone.  When i start aucat, I can't hear anything. 

Thanks for your help.

 I've had the same trouble figuring out which set of settings control
 the selection of the internal and external microphone on my laptop.
 
 Wild guess it might be related to the way settings interact with
 each other, namely record, input select, ADC source, mix source etc.
 
 Probably these map 1:1 to the hardware features of the respective audio
 device but to me as a user that's a great riddle as well and no mixer
 program solved it for me yet (though I've not checked on that for a
 while).

Here is my audio device and mixer settings if you would like to compare
with the ones you try with:

I would as well appreciate if somebody could tip which set of options
would define internal and then external microphone selection.

Reference manual is azalia(4)
