That depends on how you do your monitoring. If you use (zero latency)
hardware monitoring or external monitoring through your mixing desk,
then your recorded signal is not really passing through Ardour, it's
just captured there. That's why you won't hear the effects when

To be able to hear the effect of the effects you need to use some kind
of software monitoring, that is, you need to listen to Ardour's output
instead of the incoming signal. Check the monitoring section in the
manual for a bit more info.
