Wow, you guys are great.  I like this list.  I got several responses
and offers of help on and off list, and some great references.

Hi,

Finally played with this again (yeah been busy), and figured it out on my own.  The trick was to do it in the morning when I could actually pay attention and think, instead of after midnight on a work night ;)

Anyway, thought I'd be a good citizen and follow up on how I solved it, for future googlers.

My confusion was about how the input and output channel numbers in the Aggregate Device Editor in Audio Midi Setup correlated to the IO settings in a Logic Channel Strip.  Once I understood this, I set up an aggregate device which had my Headset Mic In (2 in) Headset Out (2 out), and M-Audio (2 in, 2 out).  Then, I select this aggregate device in the Logic Preferences Audio Devices Core Audio.  Then, I can select channel 4 (the guitar cable on m-audio), select Out 1-2 (headset headphones), click "I" for input monitor, and hear/record the guitar.  I can also select the input for the headset mic in, and record my voice at the same time as the guitar.

Oh, and the tip that the manuals were on the CD helped.  I should have known that.

Thanks,
-- Chad
