Dear Dorico Team,
This is a situation of no playback sound involving Synchron Player and Vienna Ensemble. When I started working on this project, the playback were working fine. On one occasion, the playback started to fail when I started to load the saved file. When I opened up the individual VSTs to check, I could get sound from their built-in keyboard.
Out of the frustration, I opened up another new file. In this new file, I had one instrument. As you might have imaged that with this new file, the new VST setup was with Halion SE. At this point, I did not close the project file that had this issue. I discovered that when I closed the new file and switched back to the project, all the VST plugins were reloaded and the playback worked.
For experimentation, I added in additional Halion 6 and Halion SE plugins to this project file, saved the project file, closed it and relaunched Dorico with the project file again. The situation was similar. I couldn’t get playback sound and repeating the ‘new file’ strategy worked. Since then, this has become my workaround for this project.
I hope that this information might be useful for the development team.
