Do you have GNU Radio installed? If so, that'll be the easiest way.

Otherwise, have a look at the rx_multi_samples example. It does not have
code to write to files, but you can easily add that.

All devices mix to baseband, most often directly (no IF). You will
receive complex baseband samples in your software.
