    Just got mine too, also having problems. I Had no problem recording drums using the mic though... I'm trying to record guitar over the drums now. I see that the Alesis feeds into the Mac, but using the audio port (yes I changed the sys settings and the garageband settings Codec in and Audio port out) but I do not hear the guitar coming in through the headphones.

    Be sure you set the input on Mac preferences /Garageband preference to In/Out correctly with the mic...it worked fine and sounded great.

    Update: figured out my problem: garageband guitar amp monitor was not set to give output. I selected On (no feedback protection) and works excellent now.
