no playback, no sound

Postby avarellDalton » Wed Feb 21, 2018 2:22 pm

sometimes older scores (all made in sib.7.5) I reopen to edit don't playback, altough the screen show sound were loading up at opening the score. in best case 1 instrument is sounding. restarting the computer doesn't help, restarting the configuration doesn't help.
what went wrong?

One of the things that can cause this is having an audio or video player open.

Re: no playback, no sound /playback out of tempo

none of these.
second problem arose recently: "tempocalibration" In playback some instruments (it differs from piece to piece) are not just on time on the beat: they come some microseconds later, or don't follow the drumpart. I hear "padam" in stead of "bam" if you know what I mean. very annoying.

Check that your soundcard drivers are up to date. Also make sure you are using decent hardware. If you are on Windows, they seem to be determined to make us buy newer soundcards!

Also, see what latency you are getting. Are you using an ASIO or WASAPI driver for your sounds? this can make a huge difference.
