Opening Lower Zone, silences all other tracks!

All of a sudden, when i open the lower zone to play with the midi, all of my other tracks are silent unless i enable the monitor button.
I don’t recall changing any settings…

I have had some previous issues with 'ghosts in the machine ’ (Mac).
It always happened if i left my computer on without shutting down cubase. I took this up with SUPPORT, and they said that maybe some overnight background processes messed with cubase.
The previous time it happened, one of my tracks had ghost notes.
I rectified the problem by creating a new project and dragging the tracks from the suspect project to the new project… and all was well.

This morning i loaded cubase and my hub did not show the RECENTS that i had done yesterday.
Before searching my hard drive , i re-launched cubase and the recents showed up.
Other weird things have happened in the past. a few days ago, i loaded cubase and it said it couldn’t find the halion programs in my project.
I relaunched cubase and the project loaded just fine.
Its getting like i have to swallow an Ativan every morning before i start my cubase session because i never know if i;m going to be surprised by another problem.
Don’t know if this a cubase bug issue , or a Mac issue… or if maybe i should re-download the software again. (if so… i hope and imagine that my Halion program flags would not be reset to all THREES, but that would probably just happen if i re-installed halion.

Hanz Zimmer can compose whole movie scores with cubase… he must make backups like crazy.
I’m going to a Zimmer concert in poland in a couple of months… i’m sooooo stoked.


My expectation is, you open the Key Editor of the given MIDI Part. Make sure the Editor Solo is disabled, please.

Gee… that was easy…
what do you mean by OPEN THE KEY EDITOR ? … did i do this by mistake ?
You are so helpful to me all the time, martin…
I happen to have a murphy bed in my ‘studio’ room. you are welcome to move in. My wife and I are good cooks. You could just lie in the bed when i’m composing… and just point to the screen and yell ‘Don’t do that’ !! or ; ‘Do that’…'…
