Playback issues in Musescore 4
I downloaded Musescore 4 yesterday. I am loving it so far, but I've found a few issues with playback in this version.
First, when you select a certain note or general spot in the score to start from and then hit play, the playback usually takes a second for the first note to sound. After that, the playback is fine, but when you select, say, the first note in the score, it doesn't sound instantly when you press play; there's a lag of a split-second or so. Usually, though, this doesn't happen if you press play without selecting a note first. (I bring it up because I'm used to having to press play from multiple different locations in my scores).
Second, I'm not totally sure how alternate endings work in Musescore 4 (programming them looks a little different, so I'll have to figure that out), but when I tried to include a repeat and alternate endings in one of my scores, the playback silenced an entire measure and then kept going.
Third, changing instrument sounds in the mixer is not as seamless as it once was. In Musescore 3.6, I could change the way my voice parts sounded (i.e. change it from voice sound to cello sound) and it would keep going. It would glitch a bit, but it would keep going. When I tried to do that in Musescore 4, the visual element of the playback continued as normal, but the actual sound cut back to the start of the score with the new sound.
All of these issues seem to be universal, but if needed, I can create a sample score for further investigation into any of these issues. Thank you!
