Sound is too slow
S5 - Suggestion
I have MuseScore 1.0 on Ubuntu 10.10 and I have a problem with the sound. The sound will play perfectly for a few measures when you hit play. After about 2 measures, the sound will start to break up and go slower and it'll lose touch with the blue line and the quality will be so bad that I can't tell anything from the sound anyway. Any ideas to get the sound to work? I don't think it's a software issue because the Windows version worked just fine.
Do you run MuseScore 1.0 on the same computer on Windows and Ubuntu?
Which type of computer you use for Ubuntu ? Processor, RAM etc ... ? It's possible that your computer power is too small to handle the playback. You might want to try a smaller soundfont .
Pretty sure I already replied to this but whatever. It was the same computer. Acer One Aspire, 1GB RAM, Intel Atom N455 (1.6 GHz). The soundfont I installed is already the smallest one on that list (5.7MB).
Is your score very big ? Do you have a slow down on the demo score as well ? Can you check your CPU charge during playback?
Hm. It seems to be working now, but idk how long it'll keep working..
If you have too many programs running, they might slow down MuseScore. The first thing you will notice is platback slowdown.
I close this issue.
