When starting MuseScore 3, playback is disabled. Also View/Synthesizer selection is disabled. Edit/Preferences.../IO shows PortAudio box checked, but API and Device dropdown boxes are empty and have no selections available.

MuseScore 2 works perfect though. Using MME as the PortAudio API device there.

Workaround No Yes

I've found a work around for this bug is to unplug all USB audio devices so the system only has one audio device to look at. I find this problem occurs any time I have (a) USB audio interface(s) attached allowing no playback through any device. Bug still present 3.0.4. Issue occurs on Windows not sure if anyone else is experiencing on other OSs.

Regression Yes No

I found that when I went into advanced preferences, the audio devices were missing there aswell. I reset those, pressed OK and the API options return.
