Metronome no sound Cubase 12

Hello - I have no metronome sound in Cubase Pro 12. The meters are popping with the metronome, but - no sound. Please halp! The CR button is also activated.

Thank you.,

Ok, I have a metronome sound - my question is, is there a way to have Cubase stop dropping my audio outputs that I set repeatedly/periodically? Is the only way to make different audio items work, is to periodically reset the audio outputs thru menu dives? Please HELP!!
