Playback issues in particular bars

• Jun 23, 2024 - 16:56

This bug is completely baffling me, and I've tried almost everything I can think of to fix it but nothing is working.

From bars 13-21 in the trombones in an arrangement I'm making the playback (musesounds) sounds incredibly choppy and strange, but only for this exact pattern (the pattern I want, and that worked previously). If I remove dynamics it seems to work fine but I would like to have them, and if I copy to other bars it seams to work fine. I have tried copying this to other scores, reinstalling, inserting bars before, during, and after, the issue persists, I cannot for the life of me figure out what's going on.

Attached is an image of the bugged passage, and an audio of how it sounds bugged vs how it should.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

It will be a day or so before I can finish this. I have put the trombones into a new score and, of course, they play fine. I suspect that something odd in a part is causing this and it isn't the trombones. So I will copy each part into the new score until I find the part that is causing this. Then look closely at that part. I've run into this kind of thing before.

I'm afraid I'm not much help. But here is what I found.

I copied, one by one, each part into a new score. In the end, at least the final ff triplet plays properly. So what does that mean for your score? There are a few things that are not the problem, but don't help, either.

Muse sounds can't play non-keyboard glisses. They can't play fp properly. They struggle at times with a hairpin without a dynamic at the end. They can have general problems with dynamics. Those things explain the problems up to the triplet.
If you remove the trombone hairpins before the triplet, it will play properly. Though that takes away the effect. If you leave the hairpins but change the trombones to French horn, the triplet plays evenly, but not ff.

And then I change something in my score and it doesn't play properly, Even if I undo what I changed.

Hmmmm. And then I do something else and it plays again.
