Strange Behaviour With Spark 2

Experiencing issue when I do the following

  1. Load Spark 2 (“Lyynk Indus 2” preset)
  2. Select record enable button/or monitor button
  3. Select monitor button/or record enable button
  4. Deselect monitor button/Record Enable button
  5. Deselect Record Enable button/monitor button

When I do this, I hear a snippet of the audio from plugin play (even though Cubase is not playing, and is otherwise inactive).
