How to fix some MuseScore 4 audio issues

Tips and tricks to improve playback on your device

First, make sure that your device meets the minimum specs required to make MS4 play correctly are: 8 GB RAM (16 GB recommended) CPU 4 cores (8 recommended)

Here are some things you can try:
- Turn up the buffer in Preferences I/O. And make sure your best Audio Device is chosen. Not System Default if you have a choice.


  • Right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar. Select "Sounds". In the popup select "Playback". Make sure the audio device you are using in MuseScore is checked in this window. Click next to the icon and select the "Properties" button. In the new popup, select "Advanced". Here you can uncheck "exclusive Mode" and also take the bit rate down a notch.
  • Keep the Mixer open.
  • Turn the Master Volume down one or two notches in the Mixer.
