Freeze when attempt to playback score

• Sep 23, 2010 - 19:11

I am running Musescore 9.2.6 on a Mac running OSX 10.4.11. I am working on a symphonic band score with many parts. When I press the "play" button (it is not grayed out), the program freezes and I have to force quit. I had updated recently to musescore and apparently had both ver, on my computer. I removed the newer program and it still freezes on playback. It used to work OK.


The latest version of MuseScore is currently version Is this the version you are using? It comes with sounds for many instruments (not just piano).

No, I uninstalled it and went back to the one I initially downloaded, which was ver. 0.9.6 /3145.

I took the DS al coda out of my original score (temporarily) and can see that it WILL play (cursor moves along but no sound), however now I have a new problem. Yesterday I tried once again to download a different SoundFont. It was compressed and I don't have (and can't get, apparently) the extraction program. However, now when I start MuseScore, I get a message:
"Loading SoundFont "/volumes/musescore-0.9.6/" failed. playback will be disabled. Go to Display/Synthesizer and check that the file location is correct."
Sorry to seem so incompetent, but I just can't figure out what is wrong here.

I am preparing to reload the newest version. Maybe this will help.
