Why are my stems exporting silence?

I am working with the Studio One 5 system on the Audiobox USB 96 and am having a lot of difficulty exporting certain stems. I want to export 3 tracks from my song but every time they export there is no sound. I have tried multiple times and always get a silent audio. I have also tried soloing the tracks individually and exporting the mixdown but still hear nothing after it exports. I could also try bouncing the tracks but do not know how to do this. I have tried this without the audiobox plugged into my computer. Does this make a difference? If anyone could advise on how to bounce the tracks or any way to export an audible stem that would be great.

The audio interface is not needed for importing/exporting, so it's not that.

You'll want to provide a screen shot of your export dialog as well as a section of the track information in order for someone to help you track down the cause,

My first guess is that you don't have the region with audio selected when performing the export.

For example, if your song goes from measure one to measure 50, but you are exporting measure 51, you will get silence.

Or if you are exporting track 5, but track 5 has no data then you will get silence.

Are these audio tracks Instrument tracks or MIDI tracks that trigger external (physical) sound modules?
