Tied notes are being played separately in musescore 4

• Nov 22, 2022 - 13:37


First off, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum topic.

My issue is that when I'm using playback on my score, the tied notes are not being played as a whole, but they're being played separately (e.g I have two sixteenth notes that are tied, but instead of hearing one eighth note, I'm hearing two sixteenths). Is this because the score was originally made in musescore 3.6.2, therefore is there some sort of compatibility issue? On musescore 3 the tied notes are being played just fine.

I downloaded musescore 4 through muse hub, so I think I have the latest beta.

I'm attaching my score below, my issue is evident in the first two measures.

Looks like this might be https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/issues/14137 in which case it was fixed 13 days ago.
You might very well be on the latest beta, but that is quite outdated by the current nightlies. So please test your issues in a current build.

Then if you do find them still present, as requested in the beta announcements; please report them in GitHub so long as 4.0 is not released. Then also try to minimize your score example; there's a lot of instruments and measures there and you didn't specify where to listen to (which measure, which instrument). Also make sure to specify which playback library you're using when reporting sound/playback issues: MS Basic / MuseSounds / VSTs..

I have started seeing this behaviour in a piano score with 4.0.2 (WIndows 11) . Using the mixer I have identified it is when Grand Piano (Chords.Piano) is invoked. I tried copying a passage to a new score, and for some reason I only get Grand Piano (Piano) and the chords sound is omitted. (???)

Additionally, disabling the "Play" attribute on the tied end-notes makes no difference. Theyr'e still played.

I'd attach score but copyrighted material. Still trying to find a way to get an extract that repros what i see in the main score.

There are no slurs, glissandi or other similar.

Same. Working on Mac. Before people ask, yes, they are ties, not slurs. And no, muting them (v) doesn't disable them either, as the OP mentions. I'm also doing this with an electric piano score with other instruments using chord changes.
