Playback very flat

• Oct 3, 2016 - 18:49

MuseScore 2.0.2 on Ubuntu Studio 16.04. I have tried different voices: piano, electric bass, and guitar, and all three are the same. Also used both bass and treble clefs. In order to get the playback to sound at A=440, I have had to change the synthesizer tuning to A=475. So, I've solved my problem, but thought I should point this out. Maybe it's a bug, maybe it's my equipment, maybe it's something I'm doing wrong, but here it is.

This sure can burn up some time, eh?

Just to show you what I'm talking about I've attached a score I've been working on for electric bass. I don't know if the synth settings will follow the file or not, but in case it's useful, here it is.

Thanks again. If I get to the bottom of it, I'll post more info here in case someone else has a similar issue. Current hypothesis: CPU bogged down with lots of work caused the output tone to change. Not sure it that's even possible, but closing programs seems to have changed the performance.
