VIDEO: https://youtu.be/x6mL23Jk93Y


  1. Create the Audio Track (RMB - Add audio track)
  2. Put the audio loop sample in the Audio Track
  3. Choose the Range Tool (2 key)
  4. Select a small part of the sample via Range Tool (0.5 - 1sec)
  5. Press P
  6. Press Num / (activate cycle)
  7. Press Play (Space)

BUG! You will not hear any sound!


I can reproduce it even with the Object Selection tool.

Reported to Steinberg, thank you.

Also, another bug , is the P shortcut does not seem to work anymore in cubase 13? Anyone has this issue ( win 10)?


It works for me.

I also have this issue (P shortcut not working) on Windows 11.

This bug is still in Cubase 13.0.21 PRO (18 Feb 2024). This topic was created on 06 Nov 2023! Does the Cubase QA department read users’ bug reports? This is unprofessional!


Yes. QA department can even reproduce it.

But it’s not on the QA department to decide the priorities.
