Static Noise

• Nov 26, 2019 - 04:01

It doesn't always happen, but periodically when I startup MuseScore and I go to input notes or listen to the playback, there is an extremely loud static noise that I hear that covers up all of MuseScore's audio.

Typically when it happens, the playback has a hard time loading. As a matter of fact, playback sometimes completely freezes MuseScore, even causes the application to crash. Usually happens when I have more than one instrument in a score. This bug can occur when there's one instrument playing, but not as often.

This bug causes my speakers to freak out, causing ALL audio sources to make a loud static noise. For example, if I used MuseScore and it made a static noise, if I move onto watching YouTube or making audio tracks on FL Studio, the static noise still follows even with MuseScore closed.

I know it's not my computer because I can run other rigorous software such as FL Studio without any problems.

I can see that this has been brought up before by other people:
However, it would appear that the issue hasn't been properly addressed.

Please fix! Thanks!


So far no one has been able to give any developers precise steps to reproduce the problem, and none of us has ever experienced it ourselves. So unfortunately, without additional information that would allow us to understand the source of the problem on your system, there won't be much we can do.

I have been having the same issue recently after downloading musescore on my new laptop. I have no clue why this is happening and I found the only thing causing the problem was musescore. It worked fine on my other computers, but for some reason it hates this one and I don't know why.
