Default MIDI notes not sounding

I have encountered a curious phenomenon. Some of the MIDI Tracks I have created with Expand/Mini grand intrumrnt plug-in occasionally do not sound. It seems it only happens when a 3 minute or so track is complted or near completed. A visual idicator is that the notes written in have turned from the crisp dark bilue to knida of a fuzzy grayish-blue. Nothing can get the notes to sound. I have tried delting and re-insering the instrument plug-in with no change. At first I was severely peturbed(PO’ed?), thinking multiple spent writing a track was lost. Then I discoverd that I could duplicate the track and upon re’insering the instrument plug-in all is good. This doesn’t seem to happen with other instrument plug-ins such as Superior Drummer or Sample Modeling horns much if any, but it still is a distraction while working on a project. I’m using Windows 7, 8 gig of Ram, intel 5 core processor. The system doesn’t seem to be related, because The number of instruments seems to have no bearing on the problem- it has happened before with only a piano track.
Any ideas?

It's on his profile page.

Two possibilities:
The first is PT has lost it's routing to the vi on the track. Enable 'instruments' view in the edit screen and see what the routing is.

Another possibility is the notes are somehow getting muted. Right click the track and see if 'unmute clip' is one of the selections.
