The system is fc9 on a thinkpad laptop using pulse.

Sound from the mic is heard from the speakers.
arecord does not record sound.

Simple mixer control 'Master',0
Capabilities: pvolume pswitch pswitch-joined
Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 65536
Front Left: Playback 48493 [74%] [on]
Front Right: Playback 48493 [74%] [on]
Simple mixer control 'Capture',0
Capabilities: cvolume cswitch cswitch-joined
Capture channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Capture 0 - 65536
Front Left: Capture 65536 [100%] [on]
Front Right: Capture 65536 [100%] [on]

alsamux shows card and chip set to pulse, view playback, capture, all, and item set to master.

How can this be debugged to support the mic being made available to recored? What are the toosl?
