Summary0008817: There is no way to record sound from pulseaudio input.
DescriptionThere is no way to record sound from pulseaudio input.

On my phone with a Linux environment, I cannot use sound systems other than pulseaudio.
At the moment, I decided to test this on a PC and faced the inability to connect the audio track input to the pulseaudio input.

Tell me, is there really no sound recording capability for pulseaudio, or am I doing something wrong?

This is intentional. Pulseaudio cannot guarantee reliable input and certainly no reliable latency which is a requirement for pro-audio.
Nor does pulseaudio offer MIDI support.

Ardour supports pulseaudio only for playback, which is handy in certain situation when you want to e.g. listen to a raw mix on your way home from recording in the train with BY headphones...

use ALSA or JACK or wait for pipewire.
