I don't know of any non-gui. However, I've been using Audacity 
(/usr/ports/audio/audacity) doing just what you are looking to do. The 
/usr/ports/audio/audacity port is a little dated as the latest stable 
version at is 1.2.6. The one in the ports 
is at v1.2.4. However, I have the beta v1.3.3 loaded from the 
/usr/ports/audio/audacity-devel and have not had any issues thus far.
