A. You have to set GarageBand to actually use your interface.
Open GarageBand's preferences, click the Audio MIDI tab, and select your interface (or USB Mic) from the Input PopUp menu. Make sure the output popUp menu is set for what you plan to use for Monitoring, either the interface if you're plugging your cans into it, or Built-In if you are going to plug in to your Mac. Also make sure that if your device requires drivers you've downloaded and installed the latest from the company's web site.
