No audio from track if cycle loop is set too short (like to 16th notes)

I have a drum loop and want to cycle on one hit for a moment to see where the levels are hitting but Cubase 12 will not play any audio if I set the cycle markers to the width of a 16th note, if i widen it to the size of an 8th note then it will play, any ideas or is this a bug of some sort? :thinking:
