I’m having a problem with the inserts that come bundled in Cubase 6. Sometimes when I load the Compressor or DaTube inserts onto a track, they don’t work. No sound goes through the meters on the plugin, and you can hear that the insert is not affecting the sound of the track. The output of the track sometimes behaves as if there is no insert, and sometimes the output is muted even when the insert is bypassed and deactivated (it must be totally removed from the channel to unmute audio). I think this could be two problems that just seem like one problem because I don’t understand the underlying cause.

I looked around for a while, but couldn’t find a thread about this.
I only have this problem on certain tracks. For instance in one project, the compressor mutes vocals, but works just fine on guitars. In another project, the inverse is true.
I have tried freezing/rendering the tracks that had good compressors to free up RAM (though meters all said that shouldn’t be a problem) without any luck.
I have been loading track presets from other projects. Could there be some sort of control room issue?
Thanks for looking at this problem with me.
