Right-Click Speaker > Recording Devices > Recording should give you green flashes if the device is working. I have no idea where the volume control is, and I think there's a way to set stereo or mono as well.

If you want to see Line6 as a recording device and check if it has input, click the Recording tab of Windows Sound.

See Windows Sound.
