Default PT Playback Issue

Hello all!

I've had an ongoing issue with pro tools and I can't seem to find a good way to resolve it. It seems with no rhyme or reason this tends to happen, and I will open a project and when I click play, the counter will jump to (essentially) the end of the project, and will not play anything. I will start my cursor at, say bar 6, and as soon as I click play again it jumps as far as it will go and plays nothing. Is this a simple fix? Anyone else with this issue?

Question Re: PT Playback Issue

What happens if you press the N key on your keyboard, then place the cursor at bar 6 and press play?

Default Re: PT Playback Issue

I am encountering this same issue - PT 2018.7.0, Win10 64-bit, Orion32.

I was working on a session, when it got stuck in play - stop button, spacebar would not stop audio. A few seconds later, PT crashed.

After restarting and loading the same session, every time I press play, the cursor jumps to the end of the session and no playback occurs.

Everything else is functioning normally - session loads without issues, I can edit, etc., but this session will no longer play back. Audio plays as expected using the scrubber, but using transport is no go - upon pressing play, cursor always jumps to end of session and no playback occurs.

I've loaded other sessions, they play fine.
