Cubase stops producing any sound after offline pitch shifting

I’m having a problem, where occassionally, after offline pitch shifting an audio event, Cubase will stop outputing ANY sound at all.

The meters ARE moving, outputs are still set up correctly, audio engine is running and reseting these things doesn’t help. No audio output anywhere to RME UCX. No plugins in trial mode (that would also stop the meters from moving). Everything looks normal, but no sound.

Anyone encountered a problem like this?

PC, Windows 11, 256GB RAM, i9 9940x, RME UCX.
Thanks!
