Musescore 3 Playback Button Greyed out, Synthesize option unavailable.

• Nov 19, 2019 - 18:13


I've been unable to use the playback feature in musescore, as the playback button is greyed out.
I looked at some other forums to see if they would help, but sadly nothing changed.
I've reset musescore settings to default, and re-downloaded the default soundfont.
If it helps, I cannot click synthesizer under the view tab.
Additionally, the MIDI input and output dropdown menu under preferences > I/O do not work.

Thank you for your concern.

Note: In case of interference with other programs, esp. on Windows, go into your soundcard configuration from Control Panel and ensure that the "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" in the Advanced tab of both Playback and Recording is unticked.
