I’ve found that when I play back Dorico on my mac’s built-in speakers I get these odd and faint glitch sounds, almost like skipping or tapping sounds - there is a weird slightly swung rhythm to them. They occur randomly, but there seems to be some correlation to the loudness of the audio.
I’ve been investigating this problem for the past few weeks, as it also occurs on Max 8, but not other programmes I have like Ableton 10, nor on other apps like Chrome, Spotify, Music, or Finder Audio Preview. However, the problem sometimes affects audio playing from the usually-not-affected-apps once I open Dorico e.g. I was listening to Spotify and as I opened Dorico the glitches appeared.
I’m using Dorico 3.5 on a MBP 2019 on OSX 10.15.7.
Apple support say I need to take it for investigations as they can’t determine the issue remotely. I have updated the OS and other software but do not want to move to bigsur given the substantial teething problems it has with other software.
There is no mismatch between any of my software and the audio driver settings. Nothing I do in Dorico affects the glitches (e.g. switching off the VST instrument or deleting). I suspect it is either some kind of problem with third party apps or even a fault with the speaker drivers on my machine.
Has anyone else had this problem with Dorico, or does anyone know why the issue might be?
I can try to send a sample but only by recording on my phone as trying to record on my mac gets rid of the problem, somehow.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated - it’s a difficult time to part with your computer, so I’d rather fix this myself if possible rather than hand it in for repairs!
