Crackling sound on Musescore 3.2.3

• Dec 22, 2019 - 23:48

When Musescore3 is on, including the playback of Musescore itself, every sound in my computer gets crackling sound.

System: Ubuntu 19.10, 64-bit
Memory: 15.3 GiB
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz × 8
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 530 (Skylake GT2)
GNOME: 3.34.1
DIsk: 256.1 GB

Strange thing is, it gets occasionally fixed by itself.

It might be the latest version in the repository, but the most recent version is always available as an AppImage from the Downloads page right here on this site, and that's really the preferred way to use MuseScore on Linux, since it is the only way we can control it directly.

That said, I doubt updating will matter, more likely your system just is struggling a little with resources (RAM / CPU).

I have had this really annoying issue regularly for some 6 months. There is no problem with the system (Win 10, plenty of resources) and everything is updated. I can fix it one way: Edit, Preferences, I/O, Restart Audio and MIDI devices. I can see no reason at all for why it occurs in the first place.
