Carbon.Snd is very old, and it hasn't seen much development in the  
last 8 years. Mainly because the API is baroque, and Apple has been  
steering people away from it for years.

Quicktime is probably your best option for recording from Python, but  
I wouldn't bet on it that all the correct functionality is exported  
to Python. But I'll be going to need some recording facilities too in  
the near future, so if there's something you miss let me know and  
I'll add it.
