Using AirPods or headphones for playback

Post by bonkmp » Wed Sep 22, 2021 10:36 pm

Can’t use AirPods or headphones for playback
So I’m using a new MacBook Pro and I posted this in a different forum but maybe somebody in this forum knows the answer. Neither AirPods or headphones work with my MacBook Pro with the M1 processor. I make sure they’re connected before I launch Sibelius and I can play other audio through them while using Sibelius but playback only comes through the laptop speakers.
Thanks

When you have started sibelius, have you gone to playback devices to make sure the airpods are selected? See the attached image. I know this is windows, but I believe the mac dialog is similar. If you have a choice of devices choose ASIO in preference to any other.

Yep, AirPods are selected as audio output before I launch the program and are active when I'm in the program.
