Record button not working!

Hi guys, I hope you can help me with this issue.

I’ve been using Cubase Elements 10.5 for a while with no problems.
But now, all of a sudden, the record button doesn’t work! When I press the record button on a record-enabled track, the scroll bar does not move, and it doesn’t record anything. If I click “play” instead of “record”, it moves fine.
My mic is correctly set in the Audio Connections and the Studio Set Up menus (it’s a Rode USB mic, I’ve been using it with no problems). Everything in the VST system and Control Panels looks good. I have no idea why Cubase is having this issue. Other Softwares are recording just fine.

Can anyone help, please?

Thank you!

Hi and welcome,

Do you have Count-In enabled by any chance?
