Logic Pro (X) Audio Recording Routing


I have a problem that came up recently and has stayed around while making live recordings. I'm using Logic X. My recordings have the inputs from the convertors which operate correctly. Then, I routed each input channel's outputs to bus 1 in order to record a stereo mix. For this I created an audio channel and selected Bus 1 as the input on it and stereo output as the output in order to monitor the mix. For some reason the mic signals are not being routed to the stereo mix channel via bus 1. As well, When I route the input channels to the stereo bus nothing gets to the output fader. When I play a previous recorded session I do get output to the stereo bus. Anyone have an idea of what may be going on here?
