If you have multiple monitors, then check if Soundpad is launched on another monitor.
You can also try to reset all preferences. Your sounds remain untouched. To do so close Soundpad or if necessary kill the process from the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and run Soundpad again with the launch parameter --clean
In the Steam edition of Soundpad you can do so by right-clicking Soundpad in the Steam library > Properties > Set Launch Options.
