Asterisk key not precounting or recording

Hey guys, this one is strange. Was working fine in both v8 and 9 recently. Today the asterisk key will no longer start a metronome count in and begin recording. When I press asterisk, the red record button lights up. If the track is already paying, pressing the asterisk will start recording.

Any ideas?


This is the default assigned Key Command. The Transport > Record function is assigned by default to the Num *.
