Most recording applications need to know "where" to look for the signal, so be sure that your Garageband track is assigned to the UX2, and that you have the appropriate input selected in Gearbox. Beyond that, you should take a look at the Garageband documentation or see if they can help you at the "genius bar".

You need to go into garageband preferences, found in the top bar menu. From there click the MIDI tab, and under "input" select the UX2. (i also assign the sound output to a UX2 which is hooked up to a pair of monitors, which is extremely useful)
From there, create a new track in garageband, and if you are using a guitar then just leave the Stereo 1/2 option as is. If you are using the XLR mic input, you will need to select the Stereo 3/4.
Hope that solves the problem! If it doesnt i would be happy to post screenshots to help you find what you need.
Line 6 kit and garageband is such an efficient way to record quickly and easily. Enjoy!

I have a similar issue with a UX1, i'm have issues regarding simultaneous recording of Mic and Instrument inputs on the UX1 and Garageband. I'm close in that I have both input's working in Pod Farm (dual input setup and can see levels (mic/instrument)). When I go to GarageBand I can't get both input's to record simultaneously. Only work around I've discovered is by going to the system preferences and the Line 6 audio/midi device setup, I can select Instrument (which sets both 1-2 and 3-4 to instruments) and i get the guitar input fine in garageband. I can then select Mic 1 (which sets both 1-2 and 3-4 to Mic) and I can then record/monitor the microphone. But when I select Inst. & Mic1 in the input section I only get the Instrument input working. I have the guitar set to input 1/2 and the mic 3/4 in garageband.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Running Snow Leopard, iMac, GarageBand 09', Pod Farm 1.0, Driver 4.2.4.

I'm sorry but that doesn't answer the question. I have done that (set the garageband preferences to use the UX1 usb as audio input/output. It still does not get anything from podfarm. I get no tone in garageband, though I can hear it just fine through Pod Farm. Any other ideas?

I have done everything you have told me by I'm still getting no signal from my microphone. Im using an AKG Perception 120 condenser studio microphone with my UX2. I am using garageband on my iMac. I have phantom power turned on, but I'm still getting no sound.

Dont know if you got sorted with your issue but I had similar problem as have since solved it somewhat.
I understand you have no mic sound or signal when using Garageband with UX2, have you opened POD farm and in the drop dowm box selected Mic 1 or MIc 2 etc...other than instrument.
I found that even though I was wanting to use Garageband presets I still had to make sure the POD farm 'Mic 1' was selected to obtain signal and subsequently sound.
Hope that helps
Rock on !
