I’ve been having persistent problems with audio on Dorico 5 for the last few weeks. With a couple of big projects due, I can’t really afford to be without the software.
For reference, I’m running a Mac Mini with an M1 chip and Sonoma 14.1.1. My sound device is a Steinberg UR44C.
A week ago, I opened up a project, and there was no sound. I couldn’t activate the sound in the file and the play menu was grey. I went through all the usual checks and nothing worked. I reinstalled everything and it seemed to work. again. Whew, right?
Today, with projects looming suddenly Groove Agent said I didn’t have a licence. Huh? I reinstalled it and restarted. Now, I get some sounds (sometimes incorrect, for example, a piano sound for a string staff). But the Play menu is once again grey and activating audio does nothing. Certainly the play button is greyed out again.
PS. The below is the notice I get on Groove Agent. Almost wish I’d stayed with 4.
