MuseScore 4 desktop does not play back properly

• Jan 27, 2023 - 22:24

When playing any midi file through MuseScore 4, it sounds bubbly, crackly, and slow, with an echo. A month ago I found a work-around by opening the mixer controls, but something changed and it doesn't work anymore.


I have the same problem - any score, and these are really simple - like 6 part clarinet or 4 part choir with organ, when I playback, either with the MuseSounds added or in the MS Basic the playback is crackly, bubbly with a load of static and white noise and also a wierd long delay, such that after I stop the playback there are still bubbly, crackles and static going on for a further few seconds or so.

Sorry. Too many people on this thread. You are on a Mac. I don't know what settings need to be changed on a Mac. Maybe in MU4, go to the menu bar at the top of the screen. Edit>Preferences>I/O and see if you can turn the Buffer up from 1024 to 4096.
