PortAudio Grayed out in Musescore 3.6.2, but working on 3.5.0

• Apr 14, 2021 - 15:21
Reported version
S2 - Critical

My Musescore just don't have any sound, and on the debug, on 3.6.2, I have the:

||PaMacCore (AUHAL)|| Failed to open AUHAL component.||PaMacCore (AUHAL)|| Error on line 1263: err='-50', msg=Unknown Error

But when I'm on Musescore 3.5.0 it works flawlessly

Don't know what to do, and what to enjoy the updates.

PS: This error persists since the 3.5.0, any update after this one makes my PortAudio unusable.

Nothing helped, I tried NVRAM -c, tried to disable SIP and clear NVRAM, tried to change sample rate from outputs, but nothing solved. In the end, I ended up using Jack Server, it seems to be working.

But it's sad, cause I've searched all around and don't have found anything to solve this problem, just one comment from 2017, I guess, that said that it could be a "Bad OS Installation", an I'll not reinstall my os, lots of work here. The question in the air is why does 3.5.0 works and 3.6.2 does not?

I'm trying to mess with the app content files to see if I manage to get something that could be useful.

Again, and I don't mean to come off as rude, just desperate... I, like many here, have tried EVERYTHING on these "no solution" threads here... including this one, which is why I commented. I tried all above... and nothing still.

You say you've followed all the steps given in the FAQ article, but I don't see any post you created where you listed all the information requested in step #9. So please. review those steps, this time being following each of them carefully to the letter, including step 9 if none of the rest work.

KenJC22 - To clarify, only one of those files goes in there, and you need to rename it.
I documented how to do this step-by-step in my comment here: https://musescore.org/en/node/327853#comment-1110682

I will join the chorus in suggesting you start your own thread with all the info asked for. It really does help people to help you (granted, some people are more helpful than others) – plus, it's good documentation for the developers.

Best of luck.
