MuseScore 4 is Unusably Laggy - Optimization?
It's tough to say this because I have been anticipating MuseScore 4 for a very long time now, and I'm thrilled about the new layout, tons of improvements and changes, and just an overall better piece of software. But for me, as someone who primary works on 20+ part symphony scores, this version simply will not run acceptably on my computer. I have a very new laptop with an Intel Core i9 and 32g of RAM, but that wont cut it. The score plays with an jarring amount of popping a crackling, and at about 75% of the speed it's supposed to be playing. The program also runs much slower in general. The 'clicking an element and then waiting 3 seconds for anything to happen' reminds me of trying to write huge scores in Noteflight. Until the program can deal with large scores like these, I'm going to have to go back to MuseScore 3.6.
Any optimization suggestions would be very welcome, I haven't been able to find any on my own.
