Limited to 16 audio tracks - Cubase Artist 10.5

Cubase Artist 10.5 is supposed to allow 64 audio tracks but mine will not let me add more than 16 tracks. Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome,

What happens if you add Audio Track 17, please?

The add audio track is disabled (shaded and un-clickable) after 16 tracks


Are you sure it’s Cubase Artist? How many physical inputs do you use? Could you share a video, please?

Yes I am sure it is Artist 10.5. I upgraded from Artist 6.5 last year. I use just 2 inputs. Windows 10


Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?
