Input Channels and Audio Tracks are two separate things.
When you set your inputs under Audio Connections they will appear as Input Channels in the MixConsole. These are not Tracks, but only the signal that you can route to any Audio Track you create subsequently.
Generally you add effects on the Audio Track, so that the signal is always recorded dry even if you monitor the effects when recording. In the case you want to monitor the dry input signal, just Monitor the corresponding Input Channel, or if you want to hear the signal with the effects, Monitor the Audio Track instead.
