Very strange issue

During playback none of the controls (solo, mute, faders) have any effect on the audio.

I have the cursor set to ‘return to start position on stop.’ When I hit stop and start the song over the audio doesn’t start from the beginning, it continues to play from where it left off. It’s like there’s a static version of the song that is frozen in the playback buffer and I have no control over it.

It’s super weird, and it’s only happening in one of my projects, in Cubase 10 and 9.5. Any insight? thx

Could it be that you have 2 projects open and the one you can see isn’t activated (lightning bolt, top left hand corner)?
