Musescore 4 Causes Crashes in Ableton Live and Possibly Other DAWs
I recently installed Musescore 4 on my Mac and upgraded my operating system to the latest Mac Monterey. Since then, I have been experiencing strange crashes during CPU overloads. Normally, Ableton would just briefly hang when there was a CPU overload, but it never crashed. I initially thought it was the new Mac update causing the issue, but after trying multiple solutions, I realized it was Musescore 4 causing the problem. I uninstalled the program and the issue was resolved.
I love the sound of the MuseScore instruments, but unfortunately, it caused problems for me and I ended up having to use Musescore 2 again. As a music producer, I have to say that I am impressed by how great the orchestral libraries sound, and Musescore can hold its own against even the most expensive libraries. It is also much more user-friendly and requires very little programming to get a decent sound. However, the program caused problems for me and hindered my workflow.
I believe the issue with Ableton had something to do with the plugins. There were problems with some third-party plugins when I installed Musescore 4 and the program had error messages with these plugins during the installation. I hope this information is helpful and that a solution will be found in the future. Most importantly, Ableton users should be warned that there may be issues.
