I'm currently using the stereo audio in of Overo Tide + Tobi to record
sound. My understanding is the Tobi would need an external amplifier to
record sound from a passive Mic.
As far as capture software goes I'm using Jack Audio:
which you can install using opkg. Try
opkg list | grep jack
Right now I can only get the Open Sound System backend for jackd to work
and have not yet been able to control the stereo audio in volume which
appears to be at 100% and thus introduces some distortion.
