Next I opened Audacity before opening a music file. It played normally and recorded and played back normally.
Audacity is quite a complicated program to use and reading the manual may be of benefit:
Since the sound is low when you try to record, you could have a look at the settings in Alsamixer to ensure that your soundcard has been selected as well as the PCM level.
Sound Recorder is not available in Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon but I recall having used it some time ago.
