8 Bar Note only plays 1 Bar and then becomes silent, pls help!

Hi community,

I have the following issue with ableton: I have a MIDI track with White Noise on it and I automated the volume. Now when I play it though, only one Bar plays and then it quiets again, even though the note for the White Noise is 8 Bars long. So the basic problem is that the note doesn't play its full length. Even though it is 8 Bars long, one can only hear 1 Bar of White Noise and then it becomes silent. Does someone have a solution for this? Thank you very much!

Way to little info to comment on.

First guess: use a envelope setting which lasts longer than 1 bar... ?
With kind regards,
