You could use a delay of 1 second. Write the input to the delay all the time.
If you get a recording trigger start recording the delay output.
That will give you a second before the input in the recording.

To stop recording a second after the last sound, you use the delay output to 
trigger the recording end, and then just use a [delay 1000] object to stop 
recording a second after the trigger.

hope this helps
