no mediabay preview sounds cubase 9 le

ok so my issue is that i can not for the life of me figure out why i cant listen to samples in the mediabay. Or have sounds play using groove agent. Ive found that turning off the control room box fixes the problem but being that i have the elements version and not the full cubase version. i dont have the studio tab in the vst connections window to actually get to those settings. does anyone know how i can fix this? I just wanted to get some drum samples going so i can actually record some stuff.
