Melodyne 5 Studio ARA playback issue Cubase Pro V11.0.30

After making a selection of tracks to edit or hear as reference in Melodyne Studio, when starting playback in Melodyne (double click in edit area) I get no sound - the workaround is to

  1. make selection in Melodyne
  2. listen to playback via Cubase then stop
  3. playback via Melodyne
