asked Oct 5, 2017 in Studio One 3 by treytycer (170 points)
I am using Presonus Studio One 3 Artist Version and I have multiple tracks recorded already. No busses or anything. I arranged them all and I have listened to them previously with no issues. Today I opened up my computer and one of the audio tracks isn't giving me sound. In the console, the fader isn't getting signal either. It is clear on the audio track itself that there is sound to be played but it is not playing.

The track is not muted, the volume automation is not being used, and it's at +10dbs.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

Can you please post a screenshot showing the track, and also the Mix Panel with that track showing(and any effects)?

Without seeing the screen it's really hard to figure out why a track isn't playing.

It's possible in preparing the screenshot you'll see the issue, but others can lend a hand once we see it.

I have the same issue. My bass track plays for the first 5-6 seconds, then cuts out for the rest of the song. Wav version of the track plays fine, all plugins removed and no volume automation. Not sure if it matters, but I am using a PC and a Presonus Studio 192 as my interface. Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same issue. Once a track seems to be corrupted, I cannot hear any audio from any of the tracks unless the corrupt one is muted. This effect happens on a system level as if I am playing say a video on youtube, I can't hear the audio from that unless I mute the corrupt track in studio one.

I'm running Mac 10.11.6   Studio One Artist with no external devices and using only the built in instruments.

I have the opposite problem.  I mute tracks  or solo another and I still hear everything

I have the same problem. One of 15 tracks Plays Sound at the beginning, but suddenly is muted. The track itself can be played correctly with VLS for example. The problem occurs already after starting the project without any effects.

I had this Problem not only once, so I tried something and found a work around:

Copy the file ***.wav to another, lets say, xxx2.wav. Import this file into a new track. This track can be played from start to end. I hope, this will help you all.

Check your plugins/licences, my auto tune wasnt connected so the plugin itself muted audio going through
