Sound Delay

• Jan 18, 2021 - 22:07

I read when installing the latest version that sound delay had been addressed. Scrolling bar is ahead of sound and anything included in a fermata is sounding after the fermata.


Are you saying you are experiencing some sort of problem with delay? In order to investigate, we would need you to attach the score you are having trouble with and give us precise steps to reproduce the problem. Be sure to tell us what version of MuseScore, what OS, and what settings you see in Edit / Preferences / I/O, plus if you are using any non-default soundfonts (View / Synthesizer).

I'm having no issues on a fairly new DELL with FINALE 26.3 and Note Performer.

This problem is occurring on a Surface Pro which I use to edit existing music.
Windows OS 10 Pro, FINALE 26.3, Note Performer

As you will see in measure 1:
Fermata for Perc Battery (Timp, Snare Drum, BASS dRUM, sNARE drUM 2)
Measure 2: Chimes enter

Playback : Sound does not commence until beat 3 of measure 2 with chimes which should start on beat 1.
Playback is then delayed by 2 beats going forward. As I need to create a audio demo for my client these first measures must be playing correctly.
