Recommended hardware specs for Muse Sounds on MS4?

• Dec 15, 2022 - 18:32

I downloaded the Muse Orchestra Demo score from Muse Hub and tried playing it with Muse Sounds in MS4. The playback stuttered like crazy, so I opened the task manager and found that Musescore 4 was eating up all my CPU resources. These are my laptop's hardware specs:

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz 1.19 GHz
Installed RAM 12.0 GB (11.7 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
My operating system is Windows 10, latest version.

Admittedly, I'm not going to make a full orchestra score like the sample, but this is disappointing, considering Muse Sounds is one of the big highlights of the update. If my computer is incapable of running MS4 with Muse Sounds, it would have been nice to know that when downloading it. I haven't seen any recommended hardware specifications on the site. If they exist, I stand corrected, please point me to them.


I have same problem. can I have a MS4 "Lite" version that works for lower system resource PCs, but still works for entry level users, so that they can still practice MS4 interface. If it is a very time consumption thing to do so, just forget my suggestion, no problem. Thanks a lot.
