Sound Static and Distortion
I know this topic has been addressed before, but I haven't been able to find a solution. Up until today I had no problems with playback on my scores. Then I opened one this evening to play it and found the sound was fuzzy and had lots of static. It seems like it's playing very loud or something. I did try to adjust the volume in the synthesizer but it doesn't help.
My computer volume plays everything else in a normal way, including the MP3 files I made with MuseScore. I am using Windows 8.1. The soundfont is the standard General sf.3. I haven't changed any other settings in the synthesizer. I have tried other soundfonts like Timbres of Heaven and they sound distorted as well.
I upgraded to the latest version but it didn't make any difference. I also put the program back to factory settings without any change. Is there a fix for this? Should I re-install MuseScore? I would very much appreciate any help. There are a number or scores I would like to work with but can't with the present problem.
