Synthesizer Sound Clipping
I've been using MuseScore for a while now, and I've had some problems with the sound. After a fresh install, I noticed that the playback sound was much quieter than any other program on my computer; I'd have to increase the Windows volume quite a bit. Then I learned that you can increase the volume in the Synthesizer in MuseScore, which I promptly did. This was fine until the playback got to louder parts of a song (any song with any arrangement of instruments), at which point the sound began to crackle quite heavily on the louder notes. I took a look at the synthesizer again while a song was playing and I noticed that the glowing part volume bar that measures output was constantly at the very top. I assume the sound may be getting cut off somehow but I have no idea how to fix it. I've tried it with different soundfonts, but that didn't change anything. So I either have really quite playback or dubstep. Max volume that I can do on the synthesizer is about half (-40 dB) without it starting to crackle. I know next to nothing about sound stuff, so anyone got any ideas?
If it helps, I'm running MuseScore 2.1 on Windows 10.
