Logic x turning volume of kick drum to zero when recording

I have completely given up on overbridge an I am fine with that. I have decided to go hardware only and wanted to use logic strictly as a recording device. Well I can’t seem to do even that without issue. When I hit record in logic the volume of the kick drum goes to zero on the amp page and the snare triggers on lead in. I have now yanked all the usb cables to avoid this issue and now have a pile of red usb cables and an over hub sitting there unloved. Can anyone shed some light on how to fix this. I would rather not have to plug in and unplug usb cables when I want to update the so etc. I also discovered having the usb cable attached to the OT causes it to freeze so that is also unplugged… I feel like I’m taking crazy pills
