Yes It is possible. There is a class (for both AS2 and AS3) in Flash called "Microphone".
In Flash Help, it says,
The Microphone class lets you capture audio from a microphone attached to the computer that is running Flash Player.
The Microphone class is primarily for use with a server, such as Flash Media Server or Flex. However, you can also use the Microphone class in a limited fashion without a serverfor example, to transmit sound from the microphone through the speakers on the local computer. You attach a Microphone object to a NetStream object to stream audio from a microphone.

So, for an online project which you can record mic. sound, you need Media Server, which costs 4.500 usd.

But if you are not interested in recording, you can do lots of interactive things without media server like controlling the flash movie according to input sound or giving effects to the sound...

Here is a very good and simple as3 tutorial using the class>
