   I don't have an SB but they look reasonable. Some things to look at:

1) Is some other app or sound server (like esd) grabbing Alsa and
getting in the way of normal usage? Check your process list for
everything that could be audio related.

2) If you run alsamixer have you unmuted everything required to get
the mic input to work? Have you brought up mic volume?
