There seems to be an issue with the playback of trills that are long (over multiple bars). The playback either becomes distorted or cuts out entirely. Attached is an example, where the playback cuts out around bar 6.

There was a temporary fix, that worked for a few bars of trills: "Restarting the Audio and MIDI devices" (Preferences/IO), which was suggested by a commenter at https://musescore.org/en/node/321309. However, for longer trills (e.g., 16 bars of continuous trills), this problem seems to always come up.

I have tried a few work arounds, including changing trills to tremolos, having each bar trill on its own (by removing tie and having trill symbol above each note), but none have worked.

I think the problem is due to overlapping of vol-env-release parameters of many layers (some take 3 seconds) in piano patch in default soundfont of Musescore.
Try with another piano soundfont or test it by selecting "Electric grand" patch from Mixer.

Thank you for the suggestion. It works for a selected few soundfonts. Among the piano soundfonts, it works only for Electric Grand. The other fonts (e.g., Mellow Grand, Bright Grand, Honky Tonk, Tine Electric) ran into the same issue.

I am wondering if there is a solution for the default soundfont at all.
