It doesn't always happen, but periodically when I startup MuseScore and I go to input notes or listen to the playback, there is an extremely loud static noise that I hear that covers up all of MuseScore's audio.
Typically when it happens, the playback has a hard time loading. As a matter of fact, playback sometimes completely freezes MuseScore, even causes the application to crash. Usually happens when I have more than one instrument in a score. This bug can occur when there's one instrument playing, but not as often.
This bug causes my speakers to freak out, causing ALL audio sources to make a loud static noise. For example, if I used MuseScore and it made a static noise, if I move onto watching YouTube or making audio tracks on FL Studio, the static noise still follows even with MuseScore closed.
I know it's not my computer because I can run other rigorous software such as FL Studio without any problems.
I can see that this has been brought up before by other people:
However, it would appear that the issue hasn't been properly addressed.
Please fix! Thanks!
