Have you checked the sound panel (system preferences -> sound).

There are three tabs; sound effects; output and input.

Check the output tab, see if it is pointing to your sound sticks.

yeah, I think you need to somehow enable play back... because right now all u could do is record from that outsource... try soundstudio and click the playback

I was wondering about the same thing. Record and then play back.

well, im pretty sure if you use Soundstudio, and press "soft-play thru" it will echo what your playing...
