Audio (midi) does not play after unplug/plug phone jack.

Audio output doesn't play through my headphone jack although it works perfectly fine with musescore2. It plays through the main speakers instead.


In my experience Musescore is insensitive to audio changes on my system. When I connect my headphones, I have to restart Musescore to get it to play through them. When I disconnect my headphones, I have to restart it to play through my system speakers. Maybe that's what you're running into?

Workaround Yes No

I have the same issue. I'm on Mac OS Mojave (10.14) and charts won't play through the audio jack in MuseScore 3.0, but they will in 2.3. I've restarted, manually fiddled with audio controls, etc. Nothing.

same here. closing out and coming back in doesn't work either.
Also: i use Windows and I'm fully updated. Bluetooth audio works fine, it just seems to be the audio jack

Click "Restart Audio and MIDI devices" in the "I/O" tab of the "Preferences" tab dialog every time you plug or unplug headphones. Works every time. No, you shouldn't need to do this.

Workaround No Yes

Everytime I unplug an audio jack, usually my headphones, Musescore no longer plays. They play button looks pressed and editing buttons are disabled as expected, but no sound, no movement. Other apps and system sounds still play, I don't have other apps that play midi so can't check that.

Quitting and restarting Musescore, after rearranging my audio jacks, fixes the not playing issue.

There is usually a short buzz sound when first playing something, after restart, which delays the playing for a split second.
