Tenor sax plays no A4/G4 note on beat 2.5 with swing rhythm

• Mar 4, 2023 - 07:33

For some reason Musescore won't playback the G4 (concert; A4 transposed) pitch when it's on beat 2.5 with swing rhythm. I've attached a minimal reproduction of the bug along with my version info below. The attached musescore file has the note on beat 2.5 as well as beat 3 with both straight and swing rhythms. It only stays silent on beat 2.5 with swing. If you change the note to something else it always works. It's just this pitch for some reason. The pitch plays fine with the MS Basic sound font. It stops working with the Muse Sounds Tenor Sax. It's a real shame because I like the Muse Sounds version much better than MS Basic!

This bug is reproducible both with the regular playback feature and if you export to mp3 since I'm assuming they use the same system. (I couldn't attach the mp3 per the forum's rules)

Pretty weird and specific case to find. I definitely thought I was going crazy for a while.
