Title MuseScore doesn't play semi-sharps? Add playback support for microtonal accidentals
Severity S1 - Blocker S5 - Suggestion
Priority P2 - Medium

Correct. You can get this using the Inspector to tweak the tuning, and there is a plugin that allows for this. Some day we may add built-in support for this.

There is some infrastructure in the code already, like all accidentals have a (default) centOffset, like 0 (none), +/-50 (quartet tone), +/-100 (semitone), +/-150 (3 quarter tone), +/-200 and +/-250 cent, there's just nothing using that yet.
See also https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/pull/4452, which corrects Sori and Koron offsets to 33 and -67 cent, currently a pure cosmetic change, currently. And while I'm sure I saw these offsets being mentioned, I can't find that evidencence anymore

This has come up quite often actually.
Workaound is to use one of the pluging that are available for that, (or 'hand-tine' every single note vie Inspector)
